What opportunities are available in Fifth Grade? 

Fifth grade is an exciting year.  There are many interesting learning experiences and activities your child will be involved in, especially related to  reading and writing.  In addition, students have the opportunity to take band class for the first time, and to become more involved in Student Council projects.   There are also Social Studies Olympiad and Science Olympiad events in which they can become involved.  Various contests, clubs, and presentations will also be made available to them.  There are fun projects in computer lab which will be beneficial for future learning and work.  Our main field trip to Greenfield Village in June is related to our study of American History.  All these opportunities will add to his/her 5th grade learning  adventure.
