Fifth Grade Essential Question: “How do we know who we are?”
The departmental focus of the Middle School Program at St. Anne’s School uses teams of teachers dedicated to Fifth and Sixth Grade studies to help our Fifth Grade students transition from the Lower School and promote interdisciplinary projects and collaboration. In addition to departmental studies in Humanities, Science, Mathematics, Spanish, Religion, Art, Music and Physical Education, students choose intensives that meet weekly throughout the year.
The school’s social curriculum is interwoven into all activities and is designed to build self-discipline, respect, responsibility, leadership skills, life skills and service learning.
Advisory is a place to craft community and a structure to support healthy, inclusive communication and relationship building. Advisory periods include a prayer, a greeting, sharing, an activity and daily news. Students formulate hopes and dreams during advisory and set goals to reach them. Advisors work with their advisees to support their academic and social goals.
The life skills program provides students with pertinent information on subjects such as human sexuality, drugs and alcohol, friendships and other age- and grade-appropriate topics. Students then have an opportunity to discuss these topics within a caring environment and receive guidance on many personal and interpersonal issues and choices that emerge in adolescence.
We place great emphasis on community service as a fundamental part of the educational experience. The Fifth Grade is involved in a year-round service learning project – an extension of our academic program that instills the values of service to the community, sharing and working for the common good.
