Dunlap Grade School 5th Grade Memories 2016

Grades/Perm Cards

Grades are due before you leave on May 18th. We will run copies in the office for you.

I will also print off STAR Parent reports for you to send home with Report Cards.

Don't forget to also complete PERM cards. Ask Lisa for more information if you have questions!

End of Year Details

  • Please remember to complete your end of the year checklists and schedule a time to meet with me to check out. I'd like to sit with each of you for 10-15 minutes
  • If you have an assigned key, you will need to bring it to the check out. The district office would like to account for all keys and I will check off that you have yours.
  • 1st-5th grade teachers will need to complete textbook inventory on the intranet.
  • You all know your contract work hours for the final days of school. That being said, I will not be watching the doors. Please ensure you have all items in your classroom completed and you meet with me before you leave.

Laps for Life Details

Laps for Life will be done during PE hours. Some notes:
  • If you have a St. Jude shirt, please consider wearing it!
  • PE teachers will be responsible for coverage of the classes that they have during their typical times so that classroom teachers can maintain their plan times. Classroom teachers should be with their classes for the remaining 50 minutes of the event time. For example, Mr. Carter will be supervising 3rd grade from 7:50-8:15am during their regular PE time. After that, classroom teachers will join their classes for the remaining two sessions.
  • PE teachers will supervise the Laps/Walk

Used School Supplies and Classroom Materials

We will be placing cardboard boxes in the foyer for used school supplies. A local church will be gathering any of the remaining supplies to donate to families that may need them. As students clean out their desks, please consider donating.

As you clean out your rooms, note that there is a table in the work room for classroom supplies and materials. Feel free to discard your items here. Anything on this table will be up for grabs for other staff members to use!

Awards Program

The awards program is scheduled for Friday, May 19th at 9am. We will be following a similar format as previous years. I placed seating charts in your mailboxes. Please seat your classes accordingly.

I also ask that you consider dressing up for the occasion in lieu of wearing jeans. Many of you will be assisting in presenting the awards. Thank you!

2016-2017 Staff Shirts

As we wrap up this year, it is hard to believe we are already planning for 2016-2017. I’d like to collect sizes for staff shirts before you leave for the summer. Please go to and check your size and color preference. You don’t need to make any payment. These shirts will be covered from Activity Money.

I will close this on May 24th, so please go in and indicate your preferences!

Let me know if you have questions!
