Grade 5 Transition Activities

Very soon, our Grade 5 students will become Grade 6 students! There are a handful of events coming up to celebrate this move from the Elementary School to the Middle School.
During the week of June 4th, each fifth grader will receive a gift from the PTA: a t-shirt with the name of every student in the grade written on the back. That same week, on June 7th and 8th, fifth graders will get to eat lunch in the MS cafeteria. Students always say the pizza is much better there than in the ES!
During the last week of school, each homeroom will have an end-of-the-year party. On June 11th and 12th, fifth graders will go again to eat in the MS cafeteria. On the 13th, there will be an outdoor barbecue (weather permitting) just for fifth graders to enjoy. And on the last day of school, the entire Elementary School will say good-bye to the fifth-grade class at the ES assembly.
As you can see, our almost-sixth graders will have many opportunities in June to celebrate both the end of their time in Elementary School and their transition to Middle School. It’s a very exciting time of year!
