Fifth Grade Year End Details

We are getting so excited to celebrate these soon-to-be 6th graders! Please remember that Monday, May 24th from 3:00 - 3:30 will be school@home Chromebook drop off along with the staff salute/sendoff to middle school. Immediately following will be f2f students' salute/sendoff from 3:30 - 4:00. Our outstanding parent volunteers have worked hard behind the scenes to plan special moments, too. For example, we have an impressive 5th Grade Video that the children will enjoy! Our Gators will also have a fun year-end party soon.

On Tuesday, May 25th we will celebrate these students with a walk across the stage photo opportunity with their teacher, Mrs. Bleggi, and Ms. Hempstead. Here is the schedule for this event:

Ms. Howell 5:00-5:25 pm

Mrs. Holdridge 5:30-5:55 pm

Ms. Greene 6:00-6:25 pm

Mrs. Spraetz 6:30-6:55 pm

Ms. Brophy 7:00-7:25 pm

Mrs. Yezak 7:30-7:55 pm

To follow safety protocols, it is very important that your child arrives at the scheduled time for their classroom. It is very important to understand that this is not a social gathering event. This is strictly an opportunity for your child to get a special send-off from their family and staff, walk across the stage, and photo opportunity with their teacher and principals.

Olivia M. - 2nd Grade

Huge shout out to Olivia for her kindness. She took donations to fund Girl Scout cookies for the Gulledge teachers (which they have immensely enjoyed) to lift others up and make a positive difference. Thank you!
