Welcome to Ms. Lepard's Grade 5/6 Class


I am very excited to be back in the grade 5/6 classroom with your child for the 2019/20 school year! I have been teaching with Rocky View Schools since 2003 and this is my sixth year at Banded Peak School. My experiences in the classroom have ranged from grades 1-7 and Learning Support. This will be my third year on the Grade 5/6 team at Banded Peak. I am also a parent of two children in grades six and eight.

Courses Taught: Grade ⅚ Core Subjects, Physical Education, Art

An Academic Overview:

The Grade 5/6’s will be exploring relationships this year.  The main question that we will be asking is, “How can we foster relationships with land, people and culture to create change?”.  To answer this question we will learn from the past, seek inspiration from the present, so we can lead in the future.

These are the topics that we will be exploring:

Grade 6 Math: Convert improper fractions & mixed numbers; Learn about integers; Understand ratio and percent; Multiply & divide decimal numbers; Solve equations using Order of Operations; Use variables, graphs and tables to show number patterns.
