Welcome to 5th Grade

 

Dear Parents,

5th grade is truly a year of growth, learning, and fun! It is a year to study our world's history from biblical times all the way to World War II. In Science we will discover God's amazing creation and designs from our incredible eye to our world's natural resources. Students will be challenged to think, observe, and explore new ideas and concepts. They will create, 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
