5th Grade

5th Grade Science Lab

5th grade is a time of exciting changes and new responsibilities for students, as they transition to Middle School. Students experience many firsts: using lockers, transitioning to classes on their own, choosing their own electives, learning the expectations of many different classrooms and teachers, managing their own school iPad, and changing class sections each trimester. Teachers work with students to develop these skills with lots of consistency, guidance, and grace. Workload and academic challenge also begin to increase gradually over the course of the school year. Students are pushed to grow and develop as learners and individuals, while also exploring their passions and discovering new ones along the way.
