Mrs. Erica Morse
A big hello and welcome to fifth grade math, where "Math is our Jam!" My name is Erica Morse and I am honored to be joining the Polenta Elementary staff teaching fifth grade math. Fifth graders are the LEADERS in elementary, so this is YOUR year! This year to set the example, we will work hard, focus on your special mathematic strengths and talents, discover new ones, cultivate unforgettable friendships, learn, laugh, and "Math Jam" our way to achieving more than ever before! I am eager to get the 2020/2021 school year underway and begin building our math classroom community together, both students and parents. #PUMASTRONG
