5th Grade


We have come to the end of the school year and the fifth grade class of 2021-2022 are looking forward to a nice summer break - they deserve it as they were so industrious during this school year. During the 4th quarter, we worked on our Genius Hour, simple machines, and the Code Blue projects for science.

Code Blue is a project in which students become experts in the body systems - students attended Long's Medical School to earn degrees as cardiologists, gastroenterologists, pulmonologists, orthopedic surgeons, infectious disease specialists, and neurologists.

For Genius Hour, students researched their passions and made presentations to the class and parents who attended; finally for simple machines, students built their own machines and made presentations to the lower elementary grades. It was a pretty busy quarter for science class. 

It was the privilege of a lifetime to teach hundreds of students at Prairie School.  Thank you parents and students for the wonderful, special years teaching fifth grade and Spanish. God bless.

Mrs. Long
