Fifth Grade End-of-Year Celebrations!

The kids have worked hard all year and throughout their time in elementary school.  It's time to celebrate them!  You will find information on our Fifth Grade Picnic and the Recognition Ceremony.  We will add information as it gets closer to the end of the year so check back often!


Click here to volunteer for the 5th Grade Picnic!


Let us do the photos & videotaping!  

Leave your video camera and iPhone in your purse or your car!  Parent volunteers will video the ceremony and take pictures of every student receiving their certificate (from the front row!).  We'll also have pictures from the photo booth from the 5th Grade Picnic.  These DVDs are available for order and will have THE BEST view in the entire space so you can relax and enjoy the moment (and allow all the other family members a clear view of the action, too!)
