Welcome to 5th Grade!
Our mission in fifth grade is to work towards being lifelong learners. Students will partake in hands-on experiences that will help them develop into inquisitive thinkers and active citizens of the Laidlaw and Western Springs community. They will constantly be building on prior literary, mathematical, scientific, and social knowledge. Students will work independently, in small teams, and as a class which will prepare them academically, emotionally, and socially for junior high school. It is our goal to work together as Laidlaw leaders and treat others with respect and kindness. We will also have fun doing it!
Goals in 5th Grade...
1. Continue to develop personal responsibility.
2. Build self esteem through honest successes.
3. Prepare students for McClure and beyond.
4. Help students discover their strengths and how to use them to be a part of our community of learners.
Weekly updates will be emailed in order to inform you of all the wonderful learning experiences taking place in your childs class. Important dates, assignments, and tests will be included. Please talk to your child about their hard work and encourage them throughout their fifth grade journey.
Contact us with any questions, concerns, or information that would be helpful to know about your student!
