• I hope everyone is having an amazing summer.  Relax, have fun, and have an adventure or two.  Before you know it, we will be back in school.  I can't wait to meet all of you in September.   Science in fifth grade is filled with many exciting topics, projects, and labs.  Our units are Becoming a Scientist, Earth Systems, Space Systems, Chemistry, and the Energy of Life. It will be an amazing year! If you have questions during this time or just want to introduce yourself, please feel free to e-mail me at lsmithling@svcsd.org
