Welcome to Fifth Grade!

Welcome to Mrs. Parker's Class!

I am thrilled to be teaching fifth grade this year! This is my third year at Theiss Elementary and I excited to share my love of learning, science and technology with you! I am eager to get to know you and help you grow as a student scientist and well-rounded problem solver! I set high expectations for myself and I will encourage and cheer for you as you meet and exceed your goals! Together we will embrace challenges, think critically and apply our learning as we investigate the physical, natural and living world. Get ready for your fifth grade adventure...it will be a memorable year!

Gifted & Talented

The window for Gifted and Talented (GT) identification is now open. If you feel your child shows GT characteristics and you would like to have him/her screened, please complete this online form:


The window is open from Monday, September 11-Friday, September 29. No referrals will be accepted after September 29. We do have computers available in the front office for your convenience. 

New this year, all 2nd grade students will participate in a Universal Screener. Therefore, 2nd grade students will NOT need to be referred via this online form.
