The 5th grade program at Assumption-St. Bridget School bridges the gap between elementary grades and middle school. Executive function skills such as time management, note-taking strategies, and organization are key fundamentals stressed this year. Students further their ability to read for the specific purpose of gaining information. They develop critical thinking skills and learn how to use a variety of resources. Environmental awareness & responsiblity is interwoven throughout the curriculum, through their studies, service and retreats.
The 5th grade classrooms are located in the middle school wing of the building. Students have lockers for their belongings, and become familiar with middle school routines, although their classes are self- contained, and their schedules are separate from the middle school.
