Fifth Grade Activities

It’s 2020, the year our fifth graders graduate from Hastings and move on to Diamond or Clarke or wherever their next venture may be! It’s hard to believe how fast this past six years has gone, but here we are!

As a reminder, we have one fundraiser (conference babysitting) left to help pay for our activities for the remainder of the year. We do need both parents and students to sign up to help – particularly if you didn’t help out in the fall, please sign up for at least one slot. This is not only a fundraiser, it’s a big help to other parents to have someone to watch their kids as they attend parent/teacher conferences. See the signup below!

T-shirt designs due by Friday March 6 – letter and form to submit can be found here
Yearbook questionnaires (filled out by your fifth grader) due by March 15 – please go here.
