Welcome to 5th Grade!

2013-14 5th Grade Liaison Team
What does the 5th Grade Liaison Team do?
We will be working together to help this year’s 5th grade students raise money for their end of year celebration (party),  t-shirts and their mural gift to the school.
Why raise money for the end of year party and school gift? 
The end of the year party is a way for the kids to informally celebrate their passage through elementary school. Through various activities and events, the students will be given the opportunity to earn funds for their party and their gift to the school. As 5th graders, our students are looked upon as leaders. Working to raise the money for this reward will be a valuable life lesson.
How will we, the parents, find out about the activities and volunteer opportunities?
In the coming months, we will be sending out Sign-up Genius emails for volunteers and students to sign up for the various events. If you wish to be kept informed of what is going on with the 5th Grade Liaison Team, please fill out the PTA email form and make sure you indicate that you want your email address to be shared with the 5th grade liaison team. In addition, we will update the 5th grade tab on the PTA webpage.
When will these events and activities occur? 
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.
