Grades 5 & 6


Our fifth and sixth graders bring their God-given abilities to our classroom with excitement and enthusiasm. They find out what they know and use that knowledge to learn more every day. In our classroom, we focus on improving reading, writing, and math skills, and then using those skills to understand God's truth to science and social studies concepts. Let's talk about how we can partner in the education of your child.
