Welcome to fifth grade! This is your final year at HVCS and it will be fabulous. In addition to writing a research paper and learning more about geometry, we will work on increasing each student’s level of responsibility and independence. But it’s not all work—we have fun too! We have great field trips like a week in Tybee Island, an afternoon at the Chickamauga Battlefield and a morning at the Memorial Auditorium to see a play. We also have many treasured fifth grade traditions such as tie-dying t-shirts, the flag ceremony and the Alligood essay. We look forward to sharing this fantastic year with you!
