Message from 5th Grade Committee

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped make our students' 5th-grade promotion celebration a success. I'd like to especially recognize Zari Anthony, Christina Gansman, Danielle Harris, Ellen Katz, Jenn Maffeo, Jody McKinley, Carla Sjoholm, and Megan Vissari as part of the 5th Grade Committee. We'd also like to thank all the parents who volunteered at the picnic celebration. And, of course, thank you to the 5th Grade Team and Administration for a successful and memorable promotion ceremony and final year. We wish the students the best as they move on to middle school! --Patti Sanders, 5th-grade committee chair
