Winter Break Is Here!

We have plenty of things in store for the latter half of February! We have several Joshua Tree deadlines approaching, so please read the information below. We would like to thank all our fifth grade families that have been generous with their time and resources for Union Station Lunches. Our next lunch session will be February with Mrs. Guyer and Mr. Pattullo. The Fifth Grade Advisory Team wishes you and your family a fun Winter Break!

Joshua Tree Information

The 5th grade trip to Joshua Tree is set for May 4-6, 2016. There are three key items you need to take care of by next week:


  1. Meeting: Boojum Institute educators will meet with students and parents on February 26, 12:35-1:40 pm, in Mr. Pattullo's room. They'll explain in detail what to expect at Joshua Tree, and how to prepare for the trip.
  2. Medical Form: Please click here and complete the mandatory Boojum Medical Form, due February 26.
