Fifth Grade is an amazing year at Mason-Rice. It starts with a trip to Hale Reservation to push our boundaries and try new things. It ends with a beatuiful ceremony and fun party. We encourage all Fifth Grade parents and students to play a role in graduation year activities. Read on to learn more.
Fifth Grade Graduation Activities
The Fifth Grade Graduation Committee produces the yearbook; plans the graduation ceremony and the graduation party; produces slide shows, videos or other presentations of the graduating class; and selects a class gift. They also plan several small fundraisers to raise money for these activities (including the Election Day Bake Sale and the Spring Picnic).
Spring School Picnic
Every year, the Fourth Grade parents and student organize the sale of food and slushies to raise funds for their graduation activities. Look for orders forms in Notes in late May each year.
Election Day Bake Sale
For the past few years, the fifth grade class has organized the Election Day Bake Sale as a fundraiser for its graduation activities. The fifth grade class, and their parents are responsible for cooking, collecting baked cooks for sale; wrapping the baked goods to make them attractive for sale; and manning the sale table on Election Day.
Fifth Grade Talent Show
An annual talent show will take place in the late Winter/early Spring.
