Fifth Grade Promotion
Dear 5th Grade Parents, September, 2013
Can you believe your child will be moving on to middle school next year? Whether this is your first child, last child or one in between, it is always an exciting experience for all families.
It is Baywood tradition to mark the promotion of our 5th Graders with a pool party and a memorable ceremony. We are planning on holding the pool party on Tuesday, June 10th and the promotion ceremony is scheduled for Thursday, June 12th.
All costs associated with promotion festivities are paid for by the 5th grade class.
This year, instead of running numerous fundraising activities, we are asking for a donation of $55.00 per child to cover the costs of all activities. Your contribution will go towards the following:
Pool party costs (pool rental, life guards, food and drinks, and a DJ)
All funds collected for promotion will be used entirely and exclusively for the benefit of our 5th graders. Payments can be made by cash (please make sure to label the envelope with your child’s name) or check (payable to Baywood PTA) and can be turned into your teacher or to the main office.
Please note that if you pay online there will be a $2.50 service charge for all transactions. Depending on the response for direct donations, we may need to hold fundraising events to cover costs for advancement activities. If you are unable to contribute, your child will still be able to participate in all advancement activities, but we ask that you please give what you can.
We are also collecting information about how your child would like their name printed on their diploma, t-shirt, and photo. Please include what size t-shirt they would need. Kindly complete the form on the back and return it to your teacher together with your donation by September 30, 2013. Every student needs to return this form.
Finally, we will be holding a meeting for anyone interested in helping with promotion. All are welcome! This meeting will be on Monday, October 7th at 7:00pm in the MPR. Meanwhile..start going through your old photos for inclusion in the DVD and we look forward to seeing you soon!
Thank you for all your support!
