Welcome to Fifth Grade!
"Service is Learning"
In 5th Grade at Vandenberg we focus our learning on service to others. Throughout the year students are able to participate in a variety of activities that help to cultivate their leadership in the school community, in a wide range of settings. Students are encouraged to build their capacity for learning by giving their time and talents to many clubs and services. The teachers collaborate as a team to create project-based learning experiences.
We promote the participation of students in:
- Service Squad
- Life Skills class
- Sports Club
- Battle of the Books
- Academic AP program
- Promethean and SMARTboard technology integrated into the classrooms
- Document Projectors in the classroom
- Quarterly Curriculum-based field trips
Through our business partnerships with:
- Michigan First Credit Union
- Arab American Chaldean Council
Our students gain valuable life skills.
In addition, students explore through many hands-on learning activities to include but not limited to, science investigations, field trips that reinforce curriculum, “Holidays Around the World; Multicultural Luncheon” and 5th grade Camp which is a highlight in our year!
