The fifth grade team is keeping you all in our thoughts during this unprecedented time.  Our first priority is the safety and health of our families during this school closure.  With that said, we wanted to send out grade level resources for you to access digitally.  Westhoff has also provided a hard copy, if needed outside of our school for pick-up.  These resources are optional and will not be graded. Instead they are to provide your child with review and practice of the skills they have learned thus far. 

In addition to the resources below, your child also has access to their student portal (which is accessible through the school website).  We have opened Think Central's personal math trainer to provide further math practice in additon to the usual resources that are available through the portal. 

We wish you the very best and we are looking forward to when we can all be safely back together.

Stay healthy,

Mrs. Penzes

Welcome to 5th grade's Elephant Preserve!


What an amazing journey we get to embark on together as you finish your last year at Westhoff. We have many fun and exciting activities planned for this year, and you will not believe how much you will grow by the end of the year.


Technology is a big component of 5th grade; which is why we update this website daily for homework. Please be sure to select the subscribe button to receive emails when the site has been updated. Please also use the Remind App for important information updates and reminders. You can sign up for our class remind using the information provided to you at back to school night. If you need the information again, please email me and I will send it your way. I use remind often as it is an easy way to communicate with you the information needed in a quick short text.


If you have any questions, feel free to email me at: kpenzes@wvusd.k12.ca.us


I know that our Preserve will have a great year!
