For our 5th Grade Parents!

It's hard to believe that we are already thinking about 5th grade promotion, but it will be here before we know it!

5th Grade Hall Crawl- immediately following the 5th grade promotion ceremony, attending parents/guardians will be invited to stand along the sidewalks on the 4th/5th grade playground to cheer on your 5th graders as they walk the walkways for one of the final times as an FMES student. Please feel free to makes signs and cheer loudly for all our amazing students. You will have the opportunity to sign your 5th grade student out from their homeroom AFTER this hall crawl has completed. While younger siblings cannot attend the ceremony, they will be participating in the hall crawl in the halls and on a separate playground. If you wish to dismiss a younger sibling after the hall crawl is complete, please do this from the main office. You will not be able to sign out younger siblings from their homerooms.
