5th Grade Graduation – June 16

5th Grade Families, 

We are excited to share the plan for our 5th Grade Graduation Ceremony themed, “The Climb” on Wednesday, June 16.  Our goal is to make this a memorable experience for the entire family. As a reminder, no more than 4 family members may attend for each 5th grader. We will have a Greenwood staff member collecting tickets as you enter our outdoor ceremony in the parking lot in front of the school. Due to the location of our ceremony, your on-time arrival is very important to the success of our ceremony. 

Our graduation ceremony is open to both our in-person and virtual students; however, our virtual students will have the option of attending the ceremony virtually if that meets your family’s preference.

If your student plans on attending our activities in person, your child will need to be dropped off between 7:45 – 8:00 AM in their house shirts with a water bottle labeled with their name. Once the students arrive, they will make their way to the classroom where they will be given a cap in their house color, which has been provided by the PTA. During this time, parents will be directed by our Greenwood staff to park in the back of the school on our track and black top areas.  Parents are allowed to bring their own chairs to sit in the grass or on the blacktop in front of the school. 

Our graduation ceremony will begin promptly at 8:15 AM. Students will be seated socially distanced with their homeroom cluster. Our ceremony will include several speeches, musical performances, and a personalized statement about each child by their homeroom teacher as they climb across “the stage.” 

Following the 5th grade graduation ceremony, our students will have an incredible 5th grade party from 9:15 – 11:45 AM. Students will remain with their 5th grade homeroom cluster and participate in five stations, including a Rock Wall, Game Truck, Legacy Tree Painting, Yearbook Signing, and DJ! Our students and teachers will follow all safety protocols and procedures throughout the entire day. Parents are not allowed to attend the 5th grade party at this time. 

At 11:45 AM, our 5th grade students will head to the homeroom to have a pizza party with their classmates. The day will end with house points, chants, and school pride! 

Dismissal will begin at 12:30 PM in the bus loop. Your on-time arrival is essential as we have our final staff meeting at 1:00 PM to discuss all the festivities on the last day of school!
