5th Grade Focus

Throughout our different areas of focus, we experience many valuable learning activities such as Declaration Day, service projects in and with our community, chemistry experiments, STEM projects, and ecosystem improvements. We use a variety of avenues of learning,  including inquiry based, hands-on experiences, observations, and labs, to process and organize new knowledge about the world around us. At fifth grade level, we encourage children to think outside of themselves and recognize needs in the world around us and determine how they can use their gifts to help others.
