Welcome to 5 th Grade at Our Lady of Grace! Throughout this year the class builds a bridge toward middle school. Students are encouraged to keep God at the center of their decisions both inside and outside of school. During our retreat time and throughout Family Life discussions, we highlight the Bible’s advice on building trust with others. Additionally, the sacraments are researched with more depth, paragraphs are linked together cohesively this year, robotics are introduced in STEM class and fifth graders balance their own personal bank accounts within a miniature city economy.
