Grade 5 Multi-Genre Projects

This week, our fifth grade welcomed families to view their Multi Genre Fair. Students' projects were on display and were so impressive! Each student chose a topic to research further about and then created a variety of written, creative assignments to show what they learned. Their projects demonstrated their hard work, effort, and passion for their learned topic. Their teachers are beaming with pride!
