Welcome to Fifth Grade

Dear Parents,

We are so excited to meet the newest class of fifth graders in the fall!  Fifth grade is such an exciting time, filled with milestones, special events, and leadership opportunities. 

Fifth grade is a time to develop independence, increase responsibility, and strengthen our reflection abilities.  We will read books & texts on a variety of topics and show our learning in all different cool ways.  We will grow as mathematicians and deepen our problem-solving skills.  We will investigate physical and Earth science topics and explore the U.S. regions.  We’ll continue to increase our expertise in coding and robotics.  Students will have lots of opportunities to write, to speak, and to share.  We will work in collaborative groups, create amazing projects, and most importantly, build meaningful relationships.  Life skills are a huge component of our classrooms!

Reading lots of books over the summer is a great way to stay fresh and keep progressing as a reader.  Summer reading is important to retain skills and knowledge from 4th grade.  It also gives us lots of topics for conversation!

To be well prepared for math concepts (whole numbers, fractions and decimals), please make sure your child is fluent in multiplication and division facts.  

We can’t wait to meet you all in August!  Our supply list is below if you want to do some early shopping.  Have a fantastic summer.


The Fifth Grade Team

Mr. Eldridge, Mrs. Giles, Mrs. Gugliotta, and Mr. Muldowney
