Fifth grade is an exciting year for students. It is a year of change as students gain the independence they need for their transition to middle school. As a fifth grade team, we work hard to give students opportunities to be more independent and to take more responsibility for their learning. We strive to meet each student’s individual learning needs through a variety of instructional methods, such as small groups, flexible grouping, and enrichment activities, all geared to help them gain a lifelong love of learning.
There are currently four teachers in fifth grade. Mrs. Boeji and Ms.Mitchem teach Language Arts, Mrs. Rogers teaches Science and Social Studies, and Mrs. King teaches Math.
Our goals as fifth grade teachers are:
To provide a positive environment for learning
To help students develop study skills
To help students develop lifelong organizational skills
To prepare each student for the middle school experience
To foster self-discipline and independence in each student
To provide an environment conducive to self-expression and creativity
To provide a level of computer literacy in each student
To provide a curriculum which is guided by the Standards of Learning but exceeds these standards when appropriate
