5th Grade


Mrs. Carrie Dunseth

Embracing a sense of community, fifth grade students are encouraged to contribute individually within a team of learners. As a cohesive unit, students strive to master academic content and discover the significance of personal and spiritual growth.  Fifth graders are becoming the leaders of the school. It’s an exciting year as they begin to play school sports, switch classrooms for social studies, and take on more mature roles in our school Mass like serving and reading. They have the big responsibility of leading our Charity Carnival during Catholic Schools Week.  Fifth graders learn good time management and other important study skills, with guidance from their teachers and coaches, that will set them up for success for years to come. Students collaborate on a daily basis and engage in a project-based learning approach and interdisciplinary units, allowing for more meaningful learning opportunities.  We read awesome novels, apply complex math concepts to real-life problem-solving, and participate in deep discussions. They start showing individual styles and voice when expressing ideas in more advanced writing. They are scientists as we explore planets and moons, matter, and ecosystems. Fifth graders are challenged with weekly STEM activities and coding robots.  Technology plays an important role in our learning. Please visit our class’s website to learn more specific curriculum information and see pictures of learning in action.


Fifth grade rocks!
