Fifth grade at KCS is an important year for growing. Our students are growing up and starting middle school. There are many “firsts” during this year:
- First year to switch classes each day
- First year to participate in school sports
- First year to participate in band, choir, and drama
Students are also entering a critical time when peer influence and relationships are very important. Walking through this time with our students and their parents is a top priority. KCS strives to help students take on healthy and assertive roles in their peer relationships.
Academically, it is a transition from the self-contained classroom to a team of three core subject teachers. This experience prepares them for upper middle school where each subject has a different teacher.
Spiritually, students are taking beginning steps to make their faith personal through serving opportunities and the development of a Christian worldview.
