Welcome to 5th grade!

Hello Imagine 5th graders and parents! Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year.  Specific pages for Humanities can be clicked on to the right ------> 
  Iā€™m Drew Hammond and I teach 5th grade Humanities. I am excited for my second year here at Imagine Charter School at Firestone. Before moving to northern Colorado, I taught 4th and 5th grade in Colorado Springs for six years. I love helping students to discover new skills and deepen existing ones, inspiring a love of learning and reading. Outside of school I love to read, write, camp, play guitar, cook, paint, and hike with my 4 year old American dingo, Willow.

Please let me know if you have any questions as this year goes on. 



Updates: I'll be doing something new this year for some of the homework, Google Classroom. Many returning students will be familiar with this, since it was used by 4th grade teachers. Students will be able to do the Nightly Writing Journal (NWJ) and the Nightly Reading Questions there.
