Study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly
(William Ellery Channing)
Welcome to fifth grade at the William Ellery Channing
Elementary School. I am very excited to start this new
learning adventure with you and your child. My name is
Ms. Lormilus and I will be your childs teacher this school
year. Our classroom will be a learning environment
where all students, teachers and family members will
practice being respectful, responsible and safe each and
every day. We are a community of fifth grade scholars
ready to take on any and all new challenges. Our
classroom motto is:

The Channing school was named after an
American poet named William Ellery Channing.
Mr. Channing was born in Boston Mass. On
November 29, 1818. As a young boy, he attended
Boston Latin School. For college, he attended
Harvard University, which is also where his dad
was a professor. Mr. Channing loved to write
poetry, one of his well written poems is called
My symphony, which the scholars will learn
this school year.
