Have a great Summer and Best Wishes at Gregory, Fifth Graders!

Fifth Grade Celebration Agenda

Join us at 2:15 on the Black top behind the school with your lawn chairs. The program begins at 2:20.


Parents of Fifth Grade students,

Please join us on the blacktop on the last day of school at 2:15. We will celebrate our Fifth graders, give citizenship awards, and send them off to Middle School with a clap-off.

Please bring lawn chairs. We will move lawn chairs right into the gym and continue in case of rain. Please bring immediate family only. Thank you.

The clap-off starts at 3:15. Students parade in the building past all grades, through the courtyard where they leave a memory rock, and then exit Door 11 (Kindergarten door). They will parade around the building to the blacktop where you are. You may line the walkway on the north side and back of the building to continue the clap off for them until it ends at the blacktop. Rain or shine!

Medication Pickup

If your student currently has medication at school please stop by to pick it up June 1st. Any medication left over the summer will be disposed of. If you have any questions please call Patty or Misty. You should have received medication forms sent home with your student for the 22-23 school year. New forms need to be completed for each school year. Please try to turn in the completed forms one week prior to the first day of school. Have a safe and healthy summer. Nurse Patty and Misty

every student gets Book & Math Packs for the summer!!! Arriving Home on Tuesday, May 31

Summer Family Connections - We are excited to be sending home each of our students with a bright blue bag filled with some engaging literacy and math materials to support them over the summer. These materials are for your family to keep. Indian Prairie utilized Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Funds (ESSER) to provide these resources and create some plans to stay connected with families over the summer. A letter from Dr. Talley is included in your child's bag. His letter highlights additional information on some virtual connection opportunities we are also providing for students this summer. We hope your family enjoys and benefits from these materials.
