Fifth grade is widely known as a transitional grade, and our goal is to prepare and equip students for success in middle school. Therefore, we require students to take responsibility for not only their academics, but also their behavior. While we do work hard, we also play hard. Fifth grade has many fun and engaging activities that students will always remember.The fifth grade concentrates on reading novels, the six writing traits, story writing with a flair, and relevant local topics in the newspaper. In Math we study decimals, fractions, percents, area, and beginning algebra, while in History we study the Early Explorers, Colonies, The American Revolutionary War, and Government. In Science we are studying matter and Earth Systems, and Living Systems. For more Science information, click here.
