    Welcome to fifth grade! I'm looking forward to getting the year started again as a 5th grade teacher. Feel free to contact me any time you may have a question, comment, or concern. The quickest most reliable way to get in touch with me is via Remind, followed by the email address above. 
    About the teacher:
    Professional background-
    This will be my 19th year teaching here at FES. I began way back when as a 3rd grade teacher and have since taught 5 years in 4th grade, 3 years in 5th grade, and a year in 6th grade. I came back to fifth grade this year after having been away for 3 years. I like keeping my class for the whole day in 3rd grade but really enjoy switching classes and getting to know all of the kids at a grade level.
    Personal background- 
    For the most part I grew up in this area and went through the WCSD. I have been connected to Wappingers Schools for almost 40 years! My wife and I are both teachers in the district and have two amazing little girls of our own who now also attend school in our district! 
    Again, I'm really excited to work with you this year and know we will have lots of fun learning along the way.
    Mr. Prongay
