Update from Committee Chairs: January 2, 2018
Happy New Year! This should be an AMAZING year for our 5th graders with graduation already on the horizon!
We wanted to loop you in to our planning for the activities to support Graduation Day on Thursday, June 14, 2018 and the party that follows. (While we haven’t officially let the kids in on it yet)… Our theme for this year’s party is AMAZING RACE. We want to share that now as the new season kicks off on 1/3/18.
We have a committee working on planning this fun event, as well as a small graduation gift for each child. In lieu of spirit nights throughout the year to support the fundraising, we would like to raise our remaining funds over a couple events including our 5th Grade Performance (1/16/18) and a Chipotle Night (1/30/18).
Please note that we will also be gathering photos of your children for a slide show that will be shared following the graduation ceremony. We will need one baby photo, as well as group shots of our 5th graders (starting back in Kindergarten – 5th grade).
If you would like to join our 5th grade party planning committee, or volunteer to help on event day, please contact Karen Kennedy at email@example.com. The next volunteer meeting is on 1/3/18 at Publix – John Rolfe Parkway at 7 pm (2nd floor). The February meeting is targeted for 2/7/18.
We are looking forward to an AMAZING year as we RACE towards graduation!
Thanks in advance for your support!
