5th Grade

General Education

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. For the 2018-19 school year, all students will have all three teachers. Ms. Ho specializes in literacy (reading and writing), Mrs. Kraus specializes in teaching math, and Mr. Alimonos specializes in teaching science and social studies. Please click on our classroom pages to learn more about each class.

Our monthly newsletter is attached below.

Also, several of our students have been working on videos to showcase their learning around math! Click the links, below, to watch two of the most recent videos!
