  •   5th Grade Promotion

    Families of 5th Grade Students!
    We are looking forward to spending time with you Wednesday, June 8th for 5th Grade Promotion!! As our campus has seen an uptick in positive Covid cases, we are moving our Promotion Ceremony outdoors. We hope this enables families to participate in our event safely. Additionally, we are adjusting the start time of our event to 9:00am.
    Families will enter and exit campus via the ESS gate in our parking lot. Photo opportunities will be set up in front of the school by the MPR.
    We are looking forward to 5th Grade Promotion on Wednesday, June 8th at 9:00am.
    With thanks,
    Terry Worthington
