Fifth Grade Center for Enriched Studies
Welcome back to the second year of our Center Program. Fifth grade is a busy year as we continue to follow an advanced literacy program for reading and writing and provide enrichment for math, science, and social studies.
Fifth grade also offers many special opportunities including chorus, patrols, and instrumental music. In the late fall, students will have the opportunity to apply to various middle school magnet and choice programs. In the spring, we add service learning to our curriculum as part of our annual Gemstone project.
