In addition to the content areas, fifth graders are assisted in developing personal and people skills. Possessing traits such as organization, study habits, responsibility, work ethic, perseverance, appropriate behavior choices, honesty, respect for others, manners, and cooperation will benefit students for a lifetime.
We take time every day to write assignments and important reminders in our AGENDAS. Parents, please review your child's agenda with him/her on a regular basis.
