“Education is not the filling of a pail,
but the lighting of a fire.”

Plutarch

We are pleased to welcome you to our Fifth Grade Website. We hope this will be your portal to many of the activities and much of the information about what we do in our classrooms this year. As the name implies, ‘All Things Fifth Grade,’ we hope to have our schedules, curricula, core standards, helps, and other materials (worksheets, etc.) available for you to access throughout the year. Having these things available will facilitate your access in case:

  • Papers are lost (you will be able to click on a pdf of the document and download it)
  • You need additional helps with a Math concept (videos for each lesson will be available)
  • You have an interest when a certain concept will be taught and what standards will be covered for that concept (schedules will be posted)
  • There is a need to know where your child is at any given time during the day (the daily schedule will be posted)
  • Our contact information is needed (it’s included in the “Meet the Team” section)

These are just a few items we will have available on the website. More will be added as time goes on and as the need arises. If you you have any suggestions how we might improve the site, don’t hesitate to let your child’s teacher know. We are always looking for good ideas.

“Education is not preparation for life;
education is life itself.”

John Dewey

not of facts, but of values.”
