5th Grade Information 2019-2020

Memory Book Information and Winter Carnival Volunteering!

As a reminder, is time to start gathering digital pictures for the 2020 Grade 5 Memory Book. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this project, the Memory Book is a compilation of memories and photos of the class of 2027 during their elementary years. These pictures are similar in style to the candid class pages found annually in the yearbook. We are looking for ANY pictures taken of the children at school during the past 6 years. The deadline for pictures will be February 29, 2020.


Please use the instructions below to upload the following:

  • One baby picture – ideally, less than 1 year old. 

  • Kindergarten through Grade 5  - a picture of your child with friends in each grade.  The kids love the pictures of them with their friends, so find a favorite from each grade to use.

  • Photos from 5th Grade Activities: Fun Run, Halloween, Snowman Making, Mama Mia Pasta Ria, etc.

 

When choosing photos, please note:

  • Only Sargent Class of 2020 students and teachers can be included in the Memory Book.   Other family and friends cannot be included.

  • The photos should be from Sargent events or field trips, not private events off-site

  • There are about 110 kids in the class to be included in the grade collage pages, so we will likely crop out backgrounds and scenery, unless adding context to a Sargent Memory.

  • Photos often appear darker on the collage pages – light/bright photos show more clearly than darker ones.

  • JPEG or PNG images can be no bigger than 5MB each

 

Here is how you can submit photos online, from either your computer or phone. 

   • Go to: https://images.memoryebooks.com/login 

   • If it does not automatically log you into the site, enter username: 414733685 

   • Browse to select the photo(s) you wish to upload. 

   • Please provide your child's First Name, Last Name, and Grade for each Photo. For the Baby Photo, please put "Baby" in the Description. This is very important!

   • Click "Save Details".


Although the Memory Books are distributed in June, much of the work to make this book is completed in January. We look forward to working with you all on this project and hope to create a special book for these incredible kids.

Winter Carnival Student & Parent Volunteers Needed
On Friday, February 7th the PTO is sponsoring its annual Winter Carnival. Once again the 5th grade class will provide a concession stand at the event!  They will be selling pizza, beverages and snacks. All profits made from this event will go towards their end of year events such as Brooks Day!


This is a service project for your 5th grader to donate their time and give back to Sargent.  This is optional but we hope that you will encourage them to participate. We are asking that each 5th grader sign up for a 30 minute shift to help out with this event. We will also need a handful of parents to help out as well.  A sign up form will be sent home in your 5th grader’s backpack over the next week or so. We have also attached it here for you to print. Please complete the below form and return to your child’s teacher by January 31st.

Or, you can click the following link below to sign up. Winter Carnival Sign-Up Your help is greatly appreciated!  Thank you!
