Fifth Grade

The Sacred Heart fifth graders begin to practice their critical thinking skills by wading into the complexities of each subject. Through rich dialogue, analysis, and activities, students dig deeper into mathematical patterns, engaging storytelling, interconnected etymology, and modern-day ethics. In this way, fifth graders synthesize the skills and concepts they have learned in previous years while preparing for the demands of middle school. 

There are two fifth grade homeroom classes. In addition to the two homeroom teachers, the fifth grade has two, full time, dedicated instructional aides.

Fifth graders can choose to participate in our Bring Your Own Device program. This is a 1;1 device program in which students are each required to purchase a Microsoft Surface device which they will use during their years at Sacred Heart School. All middle school students participate in this program, which is optional for fifth grade students in 2019-2020, and will be required for fifth grade students in 2020-2021.
