Welcome to Miss Hitaffer's 5th Grade! 5th grade is an important step for students. This is the last year in elementary school and we are preparing for the leap into middle school. It is the first year that students will be taking an EOG in Science along with the EOG's in Math and Reading and end of year test in Social Studies. To help with all of this information, we have 2 teachers for 5th grade this year. Mr. David Taylor will be teaching Math and Science and I will be teaching ELA (English/Language Arts) and Social Studies. Another thing to remember about the 5th grade is that it is what is referred to as a "Benchmark Year." In simple terms, a student must pass the EOG's and show a knowledge of the 5th grade material or he/she will not pass.
I would like to encourage parents to check my website weekly to help you keep up with what we are studying. The weekly spelling list will be posted along with what we are studying Social Studies. There are also EOG prep questions that you can review with your child.
If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to e-mail me or call me at the school.
Thank you for your continued support of your child and our school.
