"The Best Students, Staff, and Families Enter Through These Doors Every Day!"


It is our mission at Fifth Street Elementary School to create a learning environment that encourages all to strive for excellence, embrace the leader within, and celebrate diversity.



Dear Families,

Welcome to Fifth Street Elementary School!  It is hard to believe that this will be the last year here at Fifth Street.  There will be a lot of “last moments” as we move towards the opening of Jasper Elementary School next school year.

We are thrilled that you have taken the time to visit the Fifth Street Elementary website! Please utilize this website as an informational tool. Don’t forget to check out our calendar and your child’s grade level web page.  

At Fifth Street we are committed to creating a learning environment that encourages all to strive for excellence, embrace the leader within, and celebrate diversity.  We want to work collaboratively with your family to help your student reach their fullest potential as a student and as a leader. We strive to make learning meaningful and hold each student accountable to high expectations. 

We look forward to the 2019 - 2020 school year, filled with exciting opportunities for students and families.  I hope that you will feel the energy, drive, and passion of our Fifth Street family, each time you enter our building.

Yours in Education,

Mr. Ryan Erny
