5th Grade In-School Program 

The 5th Grade Program in Henry County supplements the school's Georgia Standards of Excellence and is introduced to all students in the fifth grade. An Extension Agent or Program Assistant will come to all the 5th grade classrooms once per month. The program assissant will conduct hands-on science lessons for the following explorations areas: Public Speaking, Georgia Barrier Islands, Electricity, Inherited Traits and Chemical Reactions. 


All schools will present an illustrated speech in class choosing from a list of 50+ different project areas. They will also have an opportunity to compete in our County Project Achievement Competition in January. If they place 1st, 2nd or 3rd (new last year 2019- 4th place) at the county level, they will then be able to compete at the District Project Achievement Competition. Only 1st and 2nd place in the food lab cateogry will advance on to the District.
