Fifth Grade

Curriculum at a Glance

Students in fifth grade receive instruction in religion, English language arts, health, mathematics, reading and/or literature, science, and social studies. In addition, instruction in art, music, and physical education are given weekly.  Classes are both self-contained by homeroom groups and departmental. All students in grades 4-8 take part in the Accelerated Reader Program.  This is a system in which students read a book (which is chosen from a lengthy list) and then take a computerized test on that book.  Points are earned and accumulated each quarter.
