Welcome to fifth grade at St. Paul Parish School. This is a year full of change and transition as students move to the upper wing and spend the year preparing for the increasing demands that middle school will bring. Ongoing instruction in faith formation provides a framework for students as they grow into middle schoolers.
For the first time, students are given letter grades and will keep track of daily class work in an assignment journal. Students will also log-on to the TeacherEase program to check the status of assignments and grades. The digital locker (on TeacherEase) contains specific assignments and project information.
In the spring, our class participates in an overnight camp-in at OMSI in Portland. Students enjoy several hands-on learning projects throughout the school year.
