5th Grade Christmas Parties!

5th grade will be having their Christmas Parties on Friday from 10 am to 11 am in their homeroom class.

If you would like to take your student home after their party please let the office know when you get here. They will give you a sticker to put on your child to show that they have been checked out in the office! This sticker will allow you to leave with your child without having to go back to the office to check them out after the party.

Please contact your child’s homeroom teacher for any questions regarding their Christmas party.

5th Grade Field Trip

Our field trip to watch Wonder is a private event with the theater. We have an agreement with the theater so our large group can get snacks. Students that are wanting a snack may pre-purchase their snack pack by Tuesday, November 14th to their homeroom teacher.  Students that do not purchase a snack pack by this date will NOT be able to purchase any snacks when we arrive to the theater on November 21st. We also have to have all parent tickets paid for by the 14th to be able to accommodate everyone. Please have your student turn in their blue form for a snack pack/parent coming with their money by Nov. 14th to their homeroom teacher.

Snack pack is $4.30 (includes a 12 oz drink, 30 oz popcorn, and a package of fruit chews)
