5th GRADE CLASS
2020-2021

The final year of elementary school brings some changes. Students select instruments and their weekly music class is now replaced with Orchestra or Band twice a week. Library is no longer every week, but bi-weekly. Along with these changes, this year is full fun and memorable events only for 5th grade families!

Classroom Contacts and Roles

Room Parents help coordinate classroom celebrations and keep families up-to-date on PTSA events & news.  
Class/Grade Photographers record special moments throughout the school year and contribute to the Yearbook. 

 

Fall Festival and Haunted House 

Haunted House FAQ
Q:  Why is this event important to 5th Grade?
A:  
As the proceeds from this event are the primary source of funds for the 5th Grade specific activities, we ask all the 5th Grade students and their families to participate. Since this occurs at the beginning of the year, it is also a team building opportunity for our students and their families.

Q:  What are these funds for?
A:  
Promotion (formerly called Graduation) Activities usually include a ceremony and parent reception with related costs, scholarships for 5th Graders (such as for sweatshirt purchases for students in need), transportation costs/increases or expenses related to our grade's field trips, and a class gift to the school are some projected uses. Other resources are available for certain grade expenses but may not fully cover it. 

Q:  What are we supposed to do?
A:  
Sign up your 5th Grade student for at least one shift at the Haunted House. More is even better, as most of 5th Grade hangs out all night at this event to be with their friends. Volunteer to help before, during, or after the event to share this experience with your student.  Donate supplies or lend necessary equipment to help us make this the BEST it can be. For those who cannot support a "haunted" or "monster" experience, contribute to the Fall Festival, which also needs 5th Grade support in our grade's concession booth.
 

Class Sweatshirts

5th grade students are encouraged to purchase a specially designed commemorative sweatshirt just for their 5th grade class. These sweatshirts may be personalized with nicknames and are usually ordered in October/November. This is not an Eaglewear item.

Yearbooks

The Yearbook team historically has included special 5th grade pages in the yearbook. Special 5th Grade sections in the yearbook include: 5th grade Haunted house, 5th grade all class photos, 5th grade Orchestra/Band group photos, 5th grade student baby photo section.

Yearbook orders TBD 

Scholarships available, email scholarships@enataiptsa.org or contact your teacher

***********************************************************

Submit your student's baby photos by  (DEADLINE TO BE ANNOUNCED)
The ideal photo would be a relatively sharp close-up of your child's face with limited items in the background, and aged anywhere from birth to 1-year old. See email sent by 5th Grade teachers or Room Parents for upload site or email: yearbook@enataiptsa.org

For scanned photos, between 225 and 300 dpi (the closer to 300, the sharper the image) is optimal. Scanning at over 350 dpi is not necessary. Digital photos are usually around 72 dpi resolution when downloaded to your computer but around 300 dpi will ensure your picture is sharp and clear. These are just guidelines and a poor quality pic is better than no pic at all!

Yearbook Photos Wanted!
Do you have photos to share from our recent Fall school events. The yearbook team has created an Enatai Yearbook photo share site to help us store photos for possible use in the yearbook. High resolution photographs with 2 or more students works the best when designing the yearbook. Please email yearbook@enataiptsa.org
