Fourth & Fifth Grades
Fourth and fifth grade mark the transitional years between the lower grades and Middle School. Students are given more responsibility as they take on the leadership roles in the Lower School.
Our fifth graders are the recognized leaders of our Lower School. They lead our Lower School assemblies and serve as our Honor Guard, helping their younger peers during drop off and pick up times. Fifth graders take an overnight trip to Richmond to visit the Capitol, the Science Museum of Virginia, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and several other landmarks in our state's capital. The Science Invention, Poetry Tea, French Market, and Honor Guard are all special fifth grade traditions.
Our Co-Curricular classes complement and mirror what students are learning in their classrooms. Classes include visual and performance art, music, world languages, physical education, and technology.
