Winter Class Party TOMORROW 1:30-2:30 PM!

Volunteers Needed for Winter Class Party!

A Letter From Our Lovely Room Reps:

We are looking forward to the Winter Party this Friday from 1:30-2:30 in the cafeteria! We are in need of some parent volunteers to help set up, monitor games, help with snacks, and clean up afterwards.

If you can help, please arrive at 1:00 and meet us in the cafeteria.

Thank you,

5th grade Room Reps


From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank all the families who have graciously gifted their child's teachers with holiday gifts and goodies! Your generous acts of kindness are warming our hearts this week!

Winter Class Party

This year, the annual 5th grade Winter Party will be held from 1:30 - 2:30 in the Cafeteria! This is a change from previous years, in order to allow time for clean up. Feel free to join your child for holiday fun! A link to pre-register was attached in the Smith campus Smore. Please email your child's homeroom teacher if you have any questions!

Tomorrow's Lunch Time Has Been RESCHEDULED!

Due to tomorrow's adjusted party schedule, fifth grade will be eating lunch in their afternoon classrooms at 1 PM. Because our classrooms have limited space, we ask that parents, family, and friends refrain from eating lunch with their child tomorrow. Instead, loved ones are invited and encouraged to attend the fifth grade Winter Class Party.

Gordan Korman Book Order Deadline EXTENDED: Friday, 1/11

Mrs. Pelias has extended the Gordon Korman book order deadline to Friday, January 11th. We highly recommend taking advantage of the opportunity to pre-order his book(s) through the library prior to his visit.
