Mrs. Karen Bailey

Welcome Back!
My name is Mrs. Bailey. This is my fourth year at St. Perpetua School and I am loving it here! Welcome to the fifth grade. This site is a work in progress (like all of us).
"Once children learn how to learn, nothing is going to narrow their mind. The essence of teaching is to make learning contagious, to have one idea spark another." -- Marva Collins

Fifth grade is a year of amazing activities such as Colonial Days, Walk through the Revolution, Road Trip through the States and many field trips. We will take BART to the city to explore the Exploratorium's new site on the waterfront, travel by train to Sacramento and the capitol building and explore the bay area marshes in Martinez. You will be challenged to read 40 books, speak with ease in front of a crowd, explore the essential questions on every fifth grader's mind. We will have discussions, do much group work, perform plays and teach each other the best strategies for learning.
As a team, we will come together to make this a springboard into Junior High!
