Welcome 5th Grade Class of 2019-2020:

I'm Charlotte Trost.  I am so excited about our upcoming year!  On this page you will find information about our classroom as well as homework assignments, important announcements and links to make this year your child's best year yet!

A little bit about me: I would like to welcome you to 5th grade this year. My name is Charlotte Trost (long o). This is my sixth year in Prince William County. I have taught 4th and 5th grade. I am a Prince William County graduate (Brentsville) and have loved calling this home for the past 16 years. I love the beach, movies, travel, Diet Coke/Diet Dr. Pepper, hanging out with my family, watching sports, and READING! I look forward to meeting and getting to know all my students and families! 


Our Class Vision

As we sail through a year of trials and troubles, we will work together to be successful and prepared for what lies in the future. Full speed ahead!

Our Class Mission

Ms. Trost’s rockin’ pirates this year will have a good attitude, will care about others in their class, will be responsible, will never give up and be gritty, and be role models for everyone.
