It takes parents from all grade levels to pitch in a hand and help plan and set up the 5th-grade promotion, and it's a great opportunity for parents TK thru 4th grade to help AND learn what it takes to put on the event, so the tradition and planning are passed along each year!
Our planning teams include:
- Logistics Team: Help set up the ceremony, stage/chairs/promotion arch, organize pop-ups, tear down and clean up post-ceremony
- Theme Team: Come up with a 5th-grade promotion theme, decorations, music and 5th-grade t-shirts
- Promotion Team: send out save the dates, invites, design program, order student promotion certificates and have the principal sign
- FUN Team: Plan and organize the 5th-grade FUN day (dance or field day, tile/art activity, etc.

Parking Lot Safety and Logistics--Permit needed
Please be aware that our school parking lot is reserved for staff and a parking permit is needed. Parents parking in the staff lot for morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up is negatively affecting our campus. Our staff exceeds the number of parking spots available and therefore, parking in the lot is causing additional challenges. In addition, there are several safety concerns as parents and children are walking through the lot as traffic is moving. Please use crosswalks and use the drive-thru lane, as intended. If you must park, please park off site and follow traffic laws.
Please click the button and review details about helping us conduct safe drop-off and pick-up practices every day!
