Welcome to 5th grade at OCES!
Fifth Grade is a wonderful year filled with new, significant learning experiences - plus fun and exciting opportunities. Our team of teachers collectively analyzes data to help each child reach his/her fullest potential.
High expectations are held for responsibility, organization, kindness, and work ethic as we focus on all subject areas. All content areas are aligned to the Georgia Standards of Excellence. The Accelerated Reader, Study Island, Accelerated Math, and Reflex programs are utilized in fifth grade to reinforce skills. The Georgia Milestone Assessment will be administered in the spring. MAP Testing will be administered in the fall, winter, and spring to assess student progress and to help teachers plan individualized instruction. Our team works with families to help build each child’s educational and social foundation to prepare him/her for middle school, which is a necessity.
We are looking forward to an extraordinary year and getting to know your child!
