5th Grade Graduation Info - Photo Request


5th Grade Graduation is just around the corner and we need your photos for the slide show! Individual photos are required; group photos are requested.

For each student, we NEED 2-3 individual photos.

These can be from any era (baby photos, toddler age, school age, etc). The higher the resolution, the better. Email these photos to reagan5thgradegraduation@yahoo.com. Be sure to include your student’s name and 5th grade teacher so that we can identify your student.

Digital photos are preferred. However, if you have a hard copy print that you want to submit but do not have access to a scanner, you may send in your photo in an envelope addressed to 5th Grade Graduation Pictures. Include your student’s name and 5th grade teacher so that we can identify your student and return your photo to you.

We also want group photos from your student’s time at Reagan.

These should be from school activities (class parties, field trips, carnival, etc.). Only send photos of your student and his/her friends at Reagan events – no family vacations or photos from other schools your student may have attended.

Send these photos in an email separate from the above individual photos to reagan5thgradegraduation@yahoo.com. Send each grade level (or year) in a separate email as we will be placing the photos in chronological order. Be sure to state the grade level (or year) in your email. Hard copy prints will not be accepted for this portion of the slide show.

All photos should be submitted by Friday, May 6. If you have any questions, please email me at reagan5thgradegraduation@yahoo.com. Thank you so much for your support!

Summer Reading Expectations for All Incoming 6th Graders

The expectation is for every student to read a book of choice over the summer and be prepared to discuss their reading with peers and the teacher at the beginning of 6th grade. We have been asked to communicate this to all students and parents, and make sure they're committed to a book before they leave for the summer.

Please ask your reading teacher if you have any questions or if your child needs any help finding a book
