The Fifth Grade Closing Ceremony will be Tuesday, June 18 at 10:00am in the cafeteria. Each family will receive two tickets due to the capacity limitations of our cafeteria which is 515 people. The ceremony tickets have already been sent home with students. Additional tickets will not be available. On the day of the ceremony, the doors will open at 9:45am and all family members with tickets will enter through the side cafeteria doors.  We ask that you arrive after 9:30 due to bus and student arrivals.  Cake will be served in the gym directly following the ceremony.  Semi-formal or concert attire is suggested for this event.  After the ceremony, you are welcome to sign-out your child for the day or they have the option of staying at school for the remainder of the day.  Sign-out sheets will be located in the gym with teachers.
