• Hello!! Can you believe it?!  You are going to 5th grade!  It will be so much fun at Dillilngham.  You will love your new school and new teachers.  Normally I would be coming into your classroom and teaching you how to open a combination lock.  But unfortunately we will not be able to do that this year. 

    Hopefully this page will help you understand the directions for successfully opening a combination lock.  I am adding links to my instructional video and pictures of the directions.  I will also add links to a couple of other videos, that I would have shown you in the classroom.  Remember, you don't have to go buy a lock....just learn the steps and you will be able to open any lock that you have the combination for.


    If you have any other questions about Dillingham, feel free to email me or your 5th grade counselor, Miss Roberts.  She is very nice and you are going to love her.  If you email her, make sure to let her know that you are a fourth grader coming from Crutchfield.  I know she is looking forward to meeting all of you.

    Miss Roberts' email is:  rroberts@shermanisd.net

    I'd love to hear from you.  If you would like to email me this summer or next year - Mrs. Simmons  ssimmons@shermanisd.net
