Welcome to 5th grade at Highland Elementary. I have been a teacher at Highland since it opened in 1999. I have taught fourth and fifth grades here.
I love fifth grade. Our curriculum is so much fun. For science we have two different Foss kits: Environments Darkling Beetles and ispods) and Energy and Matter. Our social studies curriculum centers around the United States and its history. Some exciting activities include our Colonial Fair and Notable American Leaders. At the end of the year students play kickball against the staff, launch rockets, and have an end-of-the celebration.
