Dear fifth grade families,

Please see the information below regarding upcoming events and activities for our fifth graders.

Wickliffe fifth grade celebrations:

  • Fifth grade only outdoor lunches - Thursdays, May 5, 12, 19 and 26 - during lunch time - thank you to the parents who have volunteered to help!

  • Fifth grade party - Wednesday, May 25, 3-5 p.m. (Wickliffe playground/blacktop area). The fifth graders will enjoy pizza, a DJ, The Kona Ice truck, games, and more! We need to know if your student is attending, any food allergies, and how they will be getting home! Please note, students cannot leave the party earlyPlease complete this form by Wednesday, May 18. Pick-up following the party will be on the back side of the building (morning car drop off area on Eastcleft). Thank you to all of the parents who have signed up to volunteer! Here is a link to the sign up sheet.

  • Fifth grade town meeting/graduation - Wednesday, June 1, at 8:45 a.m. in the school gym. The whole school will come together as the teachers, staff, and students celebrate our graduating fifth graders. Only parents/closest caregivers of fifth graders are invited to attend due to limited space, and the town meeting will be recorded to share with extended family.

  • Students should arrive to school as normal, and are encouraged to wear their graduation t-shirt.

  • Parents and caregivers can enter the school building at 8:30 a.m. - please sign-in and take a visitor sticker.

  • Following the town meeting, there will be a cookie reception by the wishing tree at the front of the building for the fifth graders, their fourth grade classmates, and fifth grade parents and caregivers who attended the town meeting, ending at 10:45 a.m. We're looking forward to celebrating with you!

  • Fifth grade clap out  - Wednesday, June 1, at 12:15 p.m.

  • The clap out will take place in two parts - one inside the building and one outside. Fifth graders will tour the halls inside the building so the school can clap for them; families will be doing the clap out outside of the building.

  • We will begin the inside portion of the clap out at around 12:15 p.m. This means our fifth graders will be exiting the 4/5 doors around 12:30 p.m. for the families’ part of the clap out. Please arrive by 12:15 p.m.

  • Review the diagram here so you know the path that the fifth graders will take during the outside clap out. We are asking that families please spread out along this path so the fifth graders are cheered for the entire time.

  • Feel free to make a sign congratulating ALL fifth graders on their accomplishment.

  • As the kids pass, please feel free to make your way to the castle playground where our fifth graders will gather for pictures. (Fifth graders are encouraged to wear their graduation t-shirts on the last day of school!)

  • If you plan to take your child home after the clap out, please make arrangements as to where they need to meet you. Otherwise, fifth graders should return to their classrooms for regular dismissal.

Please contact Lauren Evans at lkgevans@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Fifth Grade Graduation Planning Team
