Due to the pandemic, the fifth-grade promotion celebration will be different than it has been in the past. However, we plan on showing our students the love and appreciation they deserve for their hard work. The students will arrive to school on May 20th between 7:40 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. as they would for a normal school day. They will report to their homerooms. The celebration will begin with a breakfast at 8:30 a.m. in the cafeteria for all fifth graders. Due to social distance regulations, this will be for students only. Following the breakfast, we will begin our pictures and pick up celebration. We will have a designated area and time for your child’s homeroom picture station and pick up. During this time, your child will receive a promotion certificate and some other items provide by the staff. This will also be a time for you to take pictures of your child with their teacher. The students are encouraged to dress nicely for the occasion, as it is their promotion ceremony. We will have a sign out sheet for the students in case you want to check them out after the celebration.

Here are some tips for parents to help their child get ready for their Kindergarten year at Bartlett Elementary:
1.Write their name with clear handwriting (first letter capitalized and rest lower-case).
2. Letter Recognition – Know both the upper and lower case letters of the alphabet. Quiz with flashcards.
3. Number recognition – Recognize the numbers 0-10 in random order and be able to count to 30.
4. Foster Independence – Please have students practice opening their snack and lunch items, tying shoes, and using belts, zippers, and buttons.
5. Practice opening and closing car doors and buckling and unbuckling seatbelts independently. This makes arrival and dismissal run smooth and we have less tears.
Here are some tips for helping your child excel as a student in Kindergarten:
During the School Year:
1. Sight words - Students need to read the assigned sight words as we introduce them throughout the year. Practice with them regularly.
2. Counting to 100 - Students need to be able to count to 100 by 1’s, 10’s and 5’s. Practice with them regularly.
3. Reading - Work with them on their letter sounds and blending those sounds together to read words. Find time to let them read to you nightly.
