Fifth grade is a wonderful time in the life of your child. This is the year when they transition from elementary to middle school and become more independent learners.  They will learn new things, make new friends, and prove to themselves that they can handle more responsibility. An ELL teacher, academic specialists, and an LD, ASD teacher team with classroom teachers to provide instruction in reading, math, and writing.


Our job as fifth-grade teachers is to ensure that our students succeed with the curriculum, and believe that they can be successful in whatever they do. Fifth grade uses “HMH Math,” which is a thinking and problem-solving approach to mathematics. It corresponds to the math standards and prepares students for the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment (MCA) tests that are taken in late April. We strive to balance the rigor of academics with many educational experiences.
