5th Graders have many activities during their last year at Ruskin. As part of their academic curriculum, they will at tend Science Camp at Walden West (in the Santa Cruz Mountains above Saratoga) for five days. They will also have opportunities to attend symphony presentations in downtown San Jose, take a long hike up Mission Peak, and participate in the JASON Project, an interactive long distance science research project created by Dr. Robert Ballard. The 5th grade teachers also work to prepare the students for a smooth transition to middle school.
