Some of these activities will be during school hours, but many will be after hours. This means, we will need student and parent volunteers in order to make the event/activity successful. More detailed information on the fundraising events and activities will come out once we have a firm PTA/School schedule.
Activities and Events
The Croc Shop – 7:30am – 8:00am, 2 days a week. One member of the Liaison
Team will be monitoring the operation of the Croc Shop while 5th grade students
operate the shop. Students volunteering in the Croc Shop should know how to
make change and how to count it back to the customer. Here are some websites
that explain counting back change:
PTA events: Fall Carnival, Movie Night, Bingo, Staff Basketball Game.
5th Grade students usually run a concession stand at these events, but we may come up with some other fun activities for the students to do as well.
After School Activity (tentative): We are thinking about offering a craft type after school activity this year. An adult will be teaching the craft and a few 5th Grade students will help the younger students with the craft. Proceeds from the class will go to the 5th grade fund.
"Cropping Cros" Winter Scrapbooking Event:
February 15th, 2014 from 8:00am - 6:00pm. Informational flyer
and registration form
are available online. Registration is due by February 1st, 2014.
Basket Raffle: Parents will be asked to contribute items to fill the baskets. This usually brings in quite a bit of money for the 5th grade fund.
Hamilton Day Parade: The Culbert 5th graders are invited to participate in the Hamilton Day Parade with a float. Items/people needed: parents and students to help decorate the float, trailer and/or vehicle for the float, parent to drive the float, parents to walk the parade route to ensure safety; decorations are usually paid for out of the 5th grade fund.
5th Grade end of year celebration (party): We will need several parents to volunteer to be chaperones for the party. More details regarding the party will be sent out later in the year. In past years the classes have had a pool party and a skating rink party. Disclaimer: This is NOT a school sponsored event.
Liaison gift to the students: It has been a tradition that the 5th Grade Liaisons purchase middle school spirit wear t-shirts for the students. These shirts will be purchased with funds raised by the 5th grade class. Students that will be attending Blue Ridge MS will receive Blue Ridge shirts and those attending Harmony MS will receive Harmony’s shirts.
End of the year Promotion Ceremony: The 5th grade class will have a Promotion Ceremony toward the end of the year. This ceremony is sponsored by the school and is followed by a reception where refreshments will be served. Traditionally, 4th grade students and their parents serve refreshments at the reception.
