Fourth/Fifth Grades

The fourth and fifth grade classrooms are the oldest cohort in our Giddens School community, and as such they take on a leadership role in the school. They set an example for younger students, in their intellectual pursuits as well as in social interactions. They regularly apply diverse perspectives, knowledge, and skills to a variety of contexts, demonstrating understanding while developing new ways of thinking. Students are encouraged to explore their personal passions as they develop grade level appropriate skills. Fourth and fifth graders often work in peer groups, tackle multi-step projects, and share their learning with the community. This helps them to be prepared for success in middle school and beyond.
