Welcome To 5th Grade At Mountain View

Welcome to 5th grade at Mountain View Elementary. This year will be a big year as your student begins their transition into young adulthood and attending middle school. Our goal is to engage and inspire our students to innovate, achieve, and succeed in a safe and supportive environment. In fifth grade we strive to develop learners who are inquisitive, independent and determined to reach their highest potential. We look forward to working together with you as a team through  communication and collaboration to make this year an amazing experience for you and your child.

In 5th grade, we specialize our instruction by content. Ms. Ho and Mr. Lowthian specialize in reading, writing, and social studies. Mrs. Kidd and Mrs. Kraus specialize in teaching math and science. Please click on our classroom pages to learn more about each class.
