Welcome to Mrs. Green’s 5th Grade Science Class!
Have a great summer!!!
New 2014-15 information will be added to this site in August 2014!
CIS collects empty ink cartridges and old cell phones to turn in for cash for our school through Funding Factory. Check out their site for more information. http://www.fundingfactory.com/ If you have any items you would like to donate, send them with your child and they can drop them off in my room, Mrs. Coleman’s or Mrs. Reynolds. Thank you!
