5th Grade Info



Welcome to 5th grade! As a fifth grader, your child will have a variety of learning experiences that are fun-filled, yet rigorous, in math, reading, social studies, and writing.

Morning Drop-Off

Your child should go directly to the playground after hanging his/her backpack on the hooks outside the classroom. After the bell rings (at 8:30 am), your child will line up according to their classroom number. Their teacher will then meet their class on the blacktop and walk them back to the classroom.


At the end of our school day your child will be dismissed directly from their classroom. Those children who are Kids Country attendees, will walk to either location alone or with another friend (if that is what you have arranged). Bus riders are walked to the front of school. If you are picking your child up from the classroom, you may wait for them in the courtyard outside their classroom or have them meet you out at the back parking lot. If you are late picking up your child, they will be waiting for you in the school office.

Lunch & Snack Time

There are two recesses each day: one in the morning and one in the afternoon.  5th Graders eat lunch at 12:35. Because it’s a little later than grades 1-3, we recommend that they remember to bring a healthy snack to eat at our 10:30 recess - even if they are buying lunch. The students are always hungry by then and waiting until 12:35 can be hard for them, especially right after the summer. However please try to make sure it is something nutritious that can be consumed quickly!


Please note that homework is assigned 4 nights a week and is an important expectation in fifth grade. Although daily reading with your child is good practice and can be recorded on their monthly reading log, which is sent home with students.
