Fifth Grade

Welcome to the 5th Grade!

We are so happy to have your student with us this school year in 5th grade! Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Our fifth grade team is dedicated to empowering our students academically and we encourage families read together, study new vocabulary words and practice mathematics.

Located below is a basic reading log that you and your family can use to challenge yourselves as avid readers. It can be fun for siblings to compete against parents in a genre challenge, or to see who can read the most books in a month, etc.    

Curriculum Snapshots

The snapshots below will give you an overview of the things that your student will be learning this year.  The snapshots are organized by subject area.
