Teacher: Mrs. Folz
5th Grade is a year of so many changes. As we enter 5th grade, we are very excited about becoming part of the middle school. We now begin to switch classes and switch teachers. Mrs. Folz is our homeroom teacher, and she works very hard to keep us organized as we go from class to class. Mrs. Folz also teaches us science, where we explore 4 different kits throughout the year. Religion is taught by Mrs. Folz as we work on learning more about the mass and about our Catholic faith. Ms. Benton works very hard at improving our math skills, and Mr. Kirkman instills a love for social studies in us every day. Mrs. Bacon teaches us language arts where we work on reading, spelling, vocabulary, and writing. Our specials include art taught by Ms. Tindle, PE with Mr. Travers, and music with Mrs. Hemminger.
During 5th grade we take several field trips. We visit Angel Mounds during their Native American Days. We also get to experience the Philharmonic and go to Farm Days at the Posey County Fairgrounds.
5th graders also now have a chance to be a part of academic teams. We can participate in the science bowl and the math bowl. 5th grade is an amazing year.
