5th Grade End of Year INFO

June 11, 2015
Can you believe that these are the final days of your son/daughters elementary school days?  Remember that toothless grin that you sent off 6 years ago?  Where has the time gone?
Wednesday, June 9th:  5th Grade Beach Day Celebration from 9a-2:30p at North Beach.  Some of you have previously signed up to send something in or help out, but we have created a SignUpGenius page to make sure that you all are aware of what is needed.  If you wouldn’t mind looking at it and if you previously signed up through one of us, please sign up again on here.

Wednesday, June 10th:  Assembly from 8:05a-9:00a.  This is a special assembly where each kindergartener gives a flower to each fifth grade student as a sendoff.  It is a very sweet Edmunds tradition.  This is held in the EES cafeteria.

Thursday, June 11th: 5th Grade Tribute at 6:30p-8:00p (approximately) in the EES Cafeteria.  The tribute will begin at 6:30p sharp, so please arrive prior to this time.  This is the special event where your child is recognized for completing elementary school.  Each 5th grade teacher stands up and shares their thoughts about the students and slide shows of pictures and accomplishments throughout the year.  This is also held in the EES cafeteria.

Some of you advocated to create the K para positions, which were cut last year. I have witnessed the huge impact it has had on our youngest learners. K is when we build the foundation for future learning. Next year K class size are going up to 22… so far. If you think, as I do, that 22 5-yr-olds being cared for and educated by one adult is ridiculous then please join these efforts. The problem created when we do not build a strong foundation just gets more expensive as our most vulnerable students get older.

Please help get the word out to other BSD parents and concerned community groups.
