Our class used the Responsive Classroom curriculum approach to create a class set of rules. We also created class names. The fourth graders are the Powerful Pandas, and the fifth graders are the Famous 13.

Our mathematics curriculum for fourth and fifth grade is Eureka Math.  This curriculum focuses on the Common Core standards. Read the article below for parent tips and strategies for each Eureka module.




The Standards for Mathematical Practice are the foundation for our mathematics studies.

In addition to the Eureka Math curriculum, we use two blended learning platforms.

ST Math is used to support your child’s mathematical concept development.


First in Math is used to support your child’s fluency development.


Our science curriculum is based on the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). To learn more about the standards and content at your child’s grade level, check out the website below.
