Congratulations Fifth Grade Capstone Students!
The presentations have been so well done and reflect the ownership and expertise of these fifth grade students about their topics. A huge thanks to Megan, Rachael, and fifth grade families for all of the support and encouragement.
If you have any planned absences during these final weeks of school, please let your child’s advisor know. We have lots of final assessments and projects planned, not to mention journeys, so this information is valuable. Thank you!
Spring weather can still be variable. Thank you for helping your child to come prepared for rain or cold weather moving through. We would also like to remind families of the dress code which asks students to be appropriately covered up (as elementary students) as the warmer temperatures encourage shorts and short sleeves.
Schedules and letters for our upcoming journeys came home in folders this coming week. Please fill out the participation form and return as soon as possible to assist in advance planning. All kinds of amazing work has gone into planning these in-depth learning experiences for the elementary students. We are excited to finish the year off with journeys.
Kindergarten through fourth grade students return for the final two days of school. They will be participating in follow-up journey activities on Thursday, June 9th.
Fifth grade students will return for our final day of school.
Fifth Grade Graduation
Fifth grade students are participants in the Journeys School graduation where they are recognized and celebrated as they move on to middle school. Fifth grade students, please arrive at the Dining Lodge at 5:15 for the 5:30 start and dress up to be on stage. Plan on sitting through the entire graduation as fifth grade will be sitting front and center!
Last Day of School
We would like to give parents a “Save the Date” for the afternoon of our final day of school, Friday, June 10th. We are planning some ways to play and celebrate with the entire elementary community (including parents!) for the last few hours of school. Come if you can from 1:30 to 3:00 to play kickball, view k-1 portfolios, and attend our library opening. Finish the year with thank you circle at 3:00 with students, teachers, and parents!
Please bring a canvas bag to school by June 3rd to assist in cleaning up cubbies and materials.
