Fifth Grade – Class of 2018

5th Grade at Morris Brandon . . . Big Responsibilities, Big Fun, Big Memories!!

5th Grade Coordinators: Dede LaPorta and Charlotte Vicens

Pay your dues, RSVP for the Parent Social, and order a yard sign all in one convenient place. Offerings will change throughout the year as many items are seasonal.

Morris Brandon has a proud tradition of celebrating our fifth graders! These school leaders are entrusted with much responsibility as they finish out their time at Brandon. In return, there is a long list of activities and events and celebrations for them to enjoy all year! Responsibilities include acting as safety patrol to keep our Bees safe in the bus line and in carpool, raising and lowering the American flag on the front lawn, and largely running the Field Day activities for the younger classes in May. They will also have the opportunity to become a GREAT AMERICAN by learning and reciting some key pieces of history.


Congratulations to our 2017-18 Great Americans!

These student achieved this by completing the following 6 tasks:

  1. Recite or write the 45 Presidents in chronological order (last names are fine)
  2. Identify the 50 states & their capitals on a US map (spelling counts, three errors allowed)
  3. Recite the Gettysburg Address (they are allowed 3 prompts)
  4. Recite the Preamble to the Constitution
  5. Recite or sing the Star Spangled Banner
  6. Write the Pledge of Allegiance with no spelling or punctuation mistakes
