Grade 5 has three two-member teams. The core academics of Language Arts [Reading and Writing], Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies are taught by the teams. On one of the two-member teams, Rich Smith teaches Mathematics, Social Studies and Science and Gina Rollins teaches Language Arts. On the second two-member team, Marti-Jo Shaw teaches Mathematics, Social Studies and Science and Liz Greely teaches Language Arts. On the third two-member teams, Karen Jagolinzer teaches Mathematics, Social Studies and Science and Kelly Conley teaches Language Arts. The students spend most of their day reading, writing, and doing mathematics. We have made this a choice of concentration because literacy and numeracy are the gateway to all other academics. Although the students spend one half of the year on social studies and science, both of these subjects are integrated throughout the other curriculum.
