5th Grade Promotion May 20th

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.
Thank you,
Fifth Grade Teachers
