Fifth Grade is an important year for fostering independence and increasing responsibility. It is a year of climbing complexity as the children move from being elementary to middle school students.
We expect a significant amount of growth from our fifth graders as they prepare to leave us and move on to the middle school.
To accomplish the goals of independence and responsibility, students should use their assignment books to communicate effectively between home and school.
Responsibility is the key to success as fifth graders learn math, science, social studies, and language arts with an emphasis on demonstrating, applying, and analyzing learned skills and information. Time and attention are given to ensure that important life skills and academics are intact as fifth graders become middle school students.
