Dear Fifth Grade Families,
We know this is a very exciting time of year for our fifth grade students. There are several fun activities about to take place and we want to let you know about them.
• June 4 – June 14 (the last 2 weeks of school) = 1:50 dismissal
• June 6, Wednesday, 10:00 = Hornet Hustle
• June 13, Wednesday, 12:30 = Kickball Game, Staff vs. 5th Grade
• June 14, Thursday, 8:45 – 1:50 = Promotion Ceremony and Swim Party
• Bay-O-Vista is located at 1881 Astor Drive in San Leandro. It is directly off of Lake Chabot Road, 1.6 miles from Roosevelt.
Please have your student in class at 8:10 so we can take attendance and organize ourselves. The Promotion Ceremony begins at 8:45 in the Multi-Purpose Room. Seats go fast so we recommend being seated by 8:30. The students are asked to wear clothing that is at least a step-up from school clothes for the ceremony. The program lasts about 40 minutes. There will be many photo opportunities after the ceremony and before we change clothes and head to Bay-O-Vista Swim Club for our party. We’ll return to the classrooms by 1:40 to allow students time to collect their belongings, stay good-bye, and head off for the summer.
Thank you for your patience and support all year. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
Mrs. Lipka, Ms. Julin, Ms. Augusta, and Mr. Fishbaugh
2012 Fifth Grade Promotion News
It's time to start planning the 5th grade promotion and party! Please take the time to read this and return the bottom portion by Friday, June 1.
The Roosevelt PTA provides funds for the end of the year celebration. With these funds we are able to pay for everyone to attend the promotion field trip to Bay-0-Vista Swim and Fitness Club, hire life guards, and provide pizza for lunch. These funds also provide for a few decorations at the promotion and party.
Please go over the Bay-O-Vista rules with your students BEFORE the field trip.
RINSE off in the outside shower BEFORE entering the pool;
WALK around the pool area;
TAKE the swim test BEFORE entering the big pool (5.5 ft deep);
