Hello Fifth Grade Center Families!
It is a true honor to serve the fifth grade learning community in the Ladue School District. Fifth grade is a significant transformation for students academically, socially, emotionally and physically. Due to this certainty, the FGC staff is very cognizant of our high, but realistic expectations for students as they change from the beginning to end of the school year. We want to ensure that we meet the developmental skills of each student more now than ever as we endure these unprecedented times in education. In conjunction with meeting social emotional needs, we plan to efficiently prepare them for the middle school structure of learning while completing our innovative academic program at the FGC.
Each child possesses his/her own unique set of gifts and talents. Helping students discover and showcase these gifts is an essential function of what the caring, dedicated and passionate staff at the FGC demonstrate daily. We believe that ALL students can succeed when we all work together through collective efficacy and professional learning communities to help them thrive. An astounding, dedicated staff will be working closely with your child in addition to partnering with families to build positive relationships and accommodate students’ academic and social-emotional needs. It is our goal to make EVERY DAY COUNT as we only have one year to work with our fifth grade students before they transition to the Ladue Middle School.
If there is ever a time during the school year that I can be of any further assistance to you, please feel welcome to contact me. I am eager to help, and we are all in this together!
Let’s have a great school year!
Your partner in education,
Dr. Patricia Wilson, Principal
