Mrs. Gwen Lenz
Fifth Grade, Room F 3

Welcome to Fifth Grade!!! I am so excited to be apart of the MacArthur family.  I spent the last 15 years at Porter Elementary, and one year at Wilson. I  attended The University of Toledo in Ohio.  I am married with two beautiful children, Eric who is 24, and Emily who is 20. My husband and I will be celebrating our thirtieth wedding anniversary on August 15.  To celebrate we went on an Alaskan cruise in July.

I am really looking forward to a fantastic school year.  We will learn multiple strategies to accomplish tasks.  Your child will be bringing home a binder daily.  The binder will hold their agenda, math, reading, and writing journals.  Their agenda needs to be signed on a daily basis after your child shows you their homework.  A highlight in their agenda indicates that a homework assignment was not completed.  Homework will be assigned Monday through Thursday, occasionally on weekends.

We have some great activities planned this year: Economic Bazaar, yard sale, flight center, and science camp in Payson.  These activities can't be accomplished without the great parent support that you provide-so thank you. In room F3 we treat each other with respect and work cooperatively to accomplish our goals.

I am always looking for volunteers in the classroom, please feel free to contact me at any time.  Thanks for everything you do for your child!
