It’s hard to believe that the school year is coming to a close and that our 5th graders will be moving on to the middle school!  Celebrating this milestone has a become a tradition at Sargent, and the 5th Grade Committee is pleased to provide Brooks Day, 5th Grade T-shirts, Memory Books, and Pizza Day at no cost to Sargent 5th Graders with funds raised over the course of the school year.  Below are some important dates!

Tuesday, June 11th: Move up Day (students only) - The students will go to NAMS to meet their 6th grade teachers during the school day.  Parents go that night to meet your students teachers.  Information will come home from NAMS.

Many volunteers are needed to make Brook’s Day run smoothly.  Please consider taking a shift (or two) or lending us one of the items needed for the day.  All volunteers must have an up to date Cori Form.  To sign up please go to Brooks Volunteers. 

Friday, June 14th: Pizza Day - Lunch is provide to the 5th grade students and staff.  

Wednesday, June 19th: Clap Out

Clap out happens after attendance is taken. The students will make their way through the school and roughly arrive to the gym around 8:45. 

What is the 5th Grade Clap Out?

The Sargent 5th grade Clap Out happens on the last day of school, in the morning. It is a fun way for our 5th graders to receive a final cheer (clap) from their former teachers and classmates. It is an opportunity to be acknowledged by our school community during a 15 minute walk through the halls of Sargent to music piped over the PA system. The 5th graders especially look forward to the end of the Clap Out, as it marks a special time in their classrooms to sign each other's Memory books and celebrate the kick-off of summer before dismissal at 11:50.  Parents have enjoyed seeing their child walk through the Clap Out portion of the day, in the gym, which takes approximately 10 minutes. This is completely optional for parents to attend.  Afterward, students will be looking to celebrate in their classrooms as a final goodbye with their teachers and classmates before dismissal!

Move Up Day, T-Shirt Day, Pizza Lunch and Memory Book are for 5th grade students only, the 5th Grade Committee will reach out to room parents if volunteers are needed.

Thank you for all of your support this year!
