What is Accelerated Reading?

AR is the world’s most popular reading management software. It provides teachers with an easy and effective way to monitor all forms of guided reading practice and we get even more detailed, objective data to target instruction and ensure success for every student, regardless of level.

Please sign the reading log or assignment book each evening indicating that your child read 30 minutes.

  • At the end of each quarter, students are expected to achieve 25% of their yearly goal.
  • Students may earn more than 25% of their goal each quarter.
  • A celebration system has been organized for the school. We are encouraging students to achieve their quarterly goals and yearly goal to qualify for the end of the year AR café.

map testing
MAP Testing
  • 5th Grade will be taking the Communication Arts, Science, and the Math MAP Tests in April.
  • These tests include multiple choice and constructed response questions.
  • Constructed response answers are similar to an essay format. Students will need to restate the question and include supporting details from the information given.
  • We will be working on this type of response writing all year.
  • This year 5th grade is using
  • Saxon math textbooks and
  • supplemental material will be
  • used as needed.
  • Memorization of math facts
  • (+, -, x, ÷) is crucial in fifth grade. It will be a disadvantage to your child’s success in math if these facts are not memorized .
  • We will be practicing MAP sample questions in preparation for the state test in April.

In fifth grade science, the students are introduced to basic concepts in physical, earth, and life science. These concepts include studies of matter and energy, weather, force and motion, astronomy, and plants and animals. These activities prepare students to better understand and appreciate the world in which we live.

D.A.R.E.'s primary mission is to provide children with the information and skills they need to live drug-and-violence-free lives.

The mission is to equip kids with the tools that will enable them to avoid negative influences and instead, allow them to focus on their strengths and potential. And, that's exactly what D.A.R.E. is designed to do.

Additionally, it establishes positive relationships between students and law enforcement, teachers, parents, and other community leaders. Every youngster should have the opportunity to grow-up healthy, safe, secure, and equipped with the skills needed to succeed in life. Contemporary America, however, is rampant with challenges that could keep children from a positive life path.
