Welcome to 5th & 6th Grade!

and our year of






Our classroom is organized around a two year themed curriculum rotation. In the odd beginning school years (2015-16) our theme centers around the concept of Relationship. During the even beginning school years (2016-17), we organize ourselves around Power.

Our themes allow us to focus our language arts, science and social studies curriculum into units that are meaningful and memorable to the student. For mathematics, we use Everyday Math, a research based program developed by the University of Chicago, which uses real life applications along with”looping” to re-enforce previous material in meaningful ways.
