Welcome to Fifth Grade!
We hope you and your family have enjoyed a restful break over the summer. We are excited for our incoming fifth graders and the many exciting opportunities awaiting them during the 2017-18 school year. We hope you enjoy the upcoming school year and the learning and activities we are going to experience together. We have many fun activities and students will be busy. Please look back here often for updates.
Our fifth grade classrooms are well established and provide for a positive learning environment. Each fifth grade classroom has a Promethean Interactive Whiteboard that incorporates interactive lessons that directly involve student participation and learning. Students also use the One-to-One iPad Intitiative to show their learning in different ways. The Workshop model of teaching is consistent throughout the fifth grade and provides students lesson time, work time with direct instruction, and a closing to connect the day's learning to their everyday lives.
