Welcome to 5th Grade

 

Dear Parents,

5th grade is truly a year of growth, learning and fun — and the best part is that there are two teachers this year! From the scientific method to keyboarding, from ancient Egypt to the Culture Fair, students are challenged to think, observe and explore new ideas and concepts. They will create and memorize, question and research. They will be encouraged in their faith through learning how those who have gone before them have overcome. It's an exciting year!

Blessings,
 
Mrs. Gernlein
