Save The Date

Save the date for our 5th Grade Send Off on Tuesday, May 23rd at 2:30pm. Your invitation will go home in next week's Monday folder.

Some Basic Information:

All of the students, staff, and parents will line the hallways to cheer on the 5th graders as they walk through the school. The 5th graders will end their walk back in the 5th grade cluster (Shiner) for juice and cookies. Then, we usually let the students sign each other's t-shirts (students should wear their red Eagle Creek shirt) and/or memory books/yearbooks. Parents may then check your child out for the rest of the day, if you would like. It's a very simple celebration, but a lot of fun for the kids to see all of the people that believe in their success!
