Upcoming Events for 5th Grade Parents
Moving Up Night: Westerville City Schools invites incoming sixth grade students and their parents to attend Moving Up Night, an evening of orientation focused on the transition from elementary to middle school. Genoa Middle School will host a Moving Up event on Tuesday, April 14, at 6:30pm.
Student Celebration Posters: Each year, the fifth grade parents make a poster of their child, send it into school and a few volunteers go in early on the last day of school to place them in the ground around the front of the school. We would like to do this again this year and want to ensure that each child has a poster.
A few guidelines to follow:
Remember, this is a surprise, so try to do this without your child seeing about it. If you have any questions, please contact Patty Bibbo (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Rene Smith (email@example.com)
5th Grade Concert: The annual 5th Grade Concert will be held On Thursday, May 14 at 7:00pm in the Fouse gymnasium. Our 5th graders have been working hard all year to prepare for this performance. Attendance is optional, but highly encouraged. Student participants should arrive by 6:45 to warm up and prepare. We can’t wait to see what they’ve prepared for us! Any questions should be directed to Mrs. Stout firstname.lastname@example.org.
5th Grade Pool Party: Each year the Fouse PTO hosts an end-of-year pool party for our departing 5th graders. The event will be during the school day on Friday, May 15, at the Watering Hole (at the Westerville Community Center). Check your child’s folder for additional information.
