Fifth grade is where we help students transition to middle school. Along with "raising the bar" as far as academic expectations are concerned, the fifth grade team helps the students develop some middle school habits.
Our grade level is set apart by the fact that we specialize. That means that each teacher specializes in one or more areas. Mr. Smithback teaches math, Mrs. Davis teaches reading and social studies, and Mrs. Steven teaches science, writing, orthography and grammar. Students spend 90 minutes with each teacher.
