Let's Celebrate Our 5th Graders!

What We Need From You

Dear 5th Grade Parents,

We are so excited that we will be able to celebrate our 5th grade students and all of their achievements


Join us on June 7th from 6 – 7:15pm (rain date June 9th) at General Wayne Elementary as we usher out the elementary school chapter and welcome in the new beginnings of middle school. We’ll relish in the memories and friendships made, accomplishments achieved, obstacles overcome, and all the things learned.

Students and one parent (no siblings) are invited and encouraged to wear their 5th grade t-shirts and masks. There will be time to sign yearbooks, reflect with teachers and even enjoy a sweet treat.

Please RSVP Here:
