5th Grade Promotion

We are excited to celebrate our 5th graders with a drive through promotion ceremony. Please click on the attached flyer for details.


When: Wednesday, June 16th @ 11:00

Where: Laburnum Elementary on the parent drop off loop.


Things to know:

  • We want families to decorate their vehicles to celebrate your students.
  • Vehicles will drive through the parent drop off area where students will hear their name, receive a gift bag, and have an opportunity to take a quick photo at the photo booth to commemorate the moment.
  • Parents of all virtual students will need to come to the school between June 1 - June 11 to pick up your child's door tag. We will send the door tags home with all in person students. You will need to tape/hang the door tag on the passenger side of your vehicle on the day of the celebration. The door tag will have your child's name and this will allow 5th grade teachers to call the correct student's name.

Transition Day

Join us on June 15th for our annual Transition Day event. This is an opportunity for you and your child to hear from teachers from the next grade level. They will share what you can expect in terms of grade level content and other important information. This will be virtual and all links can be located on the attached flyer.


Note: You will attend the grade level that your student will be in next year. For example, if your student is a kindergartner, you will click on the link for "rising 1st graders".
