Fun Planned for 5th Graders during their last few months at Woodbrook

Our 5th graders have worked so hard during their elementary years and shared so many memories together, but they are looking forward to moving on to the next level of their education and growth in 6th grade. 

We would like to celebrate their educational accomplishments, experiences, friendship and fun with some great events towards the end of the school year.

  • First, we thought it would be fun to offer a Class of 2024 t-shirt for sale with the names of all of the Woodbrook 5th Graders on the back. 
  • Second, we are planning an off-site event SUNDAY, MARCH 19 at Laser Flash in Carmel for the kids to get together outside of the school setting to socialize and have some fun! Forms will be coming home soon with your student and need to be returned by March 17.
  • Finally, the 5th Grade Graduation and Class Party are events where the students can be recognized and celebrated!

Please take a moment to REVIEW the information below, mark your calendar and complete any action items (digital photo and meaningful words/quote/motto for graduation video).

Thank you,

5th Grade Event Directors
