5th Grade Mission in Action


Our faith is the foundation of everything we do. This faith helps establish a strong learning community where our Catholic values guide us in our everyday actions and learning. In 5th grade we attend Mass weekly, as well as, at Stone Crest Senior Living Center with the residents ( 5th service project). We look forward to our monthly classroom visits from Father Froehle to explore and expand our knowledge of the Catholic Church. We get to grow in our personal involvement in the church by having the opportunity to become altar servers.


In 5th grade at Saint Ambrose of Woodbury we have many exciting and interesting topics of study. A few of the highlights are Minnesota History and field trips to a variety of Minnesota Historical sites and landmarks, we study the genre of biographies and have our own wax museum where we bring our learning to life, several times through the year we say the Rosary and reflect of our religious values. These are just a few of the exciting things our 5th graders learn and experience.


In 5th grade we have three wonderful service opportunities. First, we help serve the community and our parish by celebrating Mass with the residents at Stone Crest Senior Living. Secondly, we help keep our school safe through our Safety Patrol Program. Third, we teach and model the St. Ambrose way by being buddies to our kindergarten students. Celebrating service is one of the things that make St. Ambrose such a special place!

It's not enough to have a dream unless I'm willing to pursue it -

It's not enough to know what's right unless I'm strong enough to do it -

It's not enough to join the crowd, to be acknowledge and accepted - I must be true to my ideals, even if I'm left out and rejected-

It's not enough to learn the truth unless I also learn to live it -

It's not enough to reach for love unless I care enough to give it.
