Third, fourth and fifth grades are departmentalized this year. This means that fifth graders will see the following teachers for the following subjects: Homeroom teachers = reading; Chance Schoser = Science & Social Studies; Sarah Pinkerton = English Language Arts; Tiffany Miera = Math. In alignment with Personalized Competency Based Learning, we have designed flexible groups for Math and English Language Arts, that allow students to move through content when they demonstrate competency. At the beginning of each math unit, for example, students take a pre-assessment and teachers place them in flexible groups for that unit so that they can work on the skills needed for that unit.
