5th Grade

Welcome to 5th Grade

5th grade is truly a year of growth, learning, and fun! 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!
