Welcome 5th Grade Parents and Students!

 

Our 5th Grade theme for the 2018-2019 school year is: We Make Smart Look Cool!  To ensure you stay informed, please visit and join our private Facebook page named Kelly Mill 5th Grade Activities Committee.  You can also join our Remind group by entering code: @ghh6kd2

 

The purpose of the 5th Grade Committee (5GC) is to celebrate a milestone in the life of your children; the final year of elementary school. We do this by…

  • Organizing social activities/events to build a sense of camaraderie and community among all 5th grade classes at KME.
  • Embracing the “We Are Kelly Mill” school theme, and the "We are Family" mantra through service projects, community input, and helping in and around the school. 
  • Hosting a blowout celebration and ceremony the last two days of school.
  • Fundraising (one of those necessary evils). The 5GC does fundraising throughout the school year to help cover the cost of the events we put on for our students. We would love to have as many 5th grade parent volunteers to help us with these fundraising events, if possible.
