Mrs. Guthmiller's 3rd Grade Class

Hello, Thank you for visiting my page. My name is JoAnn Guthmiller. I was born and raised in Owatonna, MN, and graduated from high school in 1981. I attended Mankato State University and graduated in 1985 with a BS degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Kindergarten. I was hired at Lyle Public School in 1986, and have been here ever since. I met my husband, Jim, the first year we were teachers and married in 1988. He now is a science teacher at Southland School in Adams. MN. I have a daughter and a son. I enjoy reading, knitting, being with my two dogs, Hunny and Emma, and spending time at the cabin in northern MN.

Overview of Classes

Math: ---The 5th grade will use the MY Math Curriculum and Study Island.
Handwriting: Cursive writing will be encouraged in the .classroom.

Social Studies/ Science:  We will be using the S.S. and Science textbooks and Study Island to fulfill our Standards.

Snack/Milk Break: The 5th graders will have milk break every day where they can buy a white milk, chocolate milk, apple juice or orange juice. The price of the milk/juice is not taken care of with free or reduced lunch.  If your child wishes to bring in a snack that is fine.  Lyle school asks that the snack be nutritious.
