Fifth Grade

Our Mission

Using a teamwork approach, our 5th Grade classrooms here at North Mahaska work together to achieve a sense of community. Our 5th grade teaching staff meets each morning to go over daily goals, review expectations and ensure that a positive atmosphere is created for all individuals. By supporting and respecting each other, students learn the value of communication and sharing responsibilities. Parents are provided with weekly newsletters, reminder text messages as well as phone calls to encourage a connection between school and home life. Classrooms offer a variety of support such as iPads, audio books, a classroom library, math manipulatives, and online resources. The goal for students is to become engaged in learning, to find school a safe and positive place and become proficient in all subject areas.
