5th Grade End of the Year Celebrations!


What a crazy year it has been! As we begin to think about the end of the year, we wanted to share with you the activities planned to close out our fifth grade year. While we know this year’s end will not be like any other, we are thankful we can offer some opportunities for our fifth graders.  We are planning two events to close out our year - a Drive Through Farewell Celebration and a Video Closing Ceremony.


Drive-Through Farewell Celebration - Wednesday, May 26

(Rain date: Wednesday, June 9)


In order to comply with social distancing and to move everyone through in a reasonable amount of time, we will be offering families the flexibility to sign up for a time slot using Sign Up Genius.


Sign ups will be in 5 minute increments. Please use this Sign Up Genius link to sign up for a time.


To keep our event safe and organized, please arrive promptly at your appointment time. If you arrive early, you may be asked to return at your appointment time, due to the number of cars that will be driving through.


The drive through celebration will include four different stations:

  1. Check-in - Please stay in your car to check in with a member of our staff.
  2. Yard signs - Please stay in your car as you receive a Bushy Park yard sign, generously provided by the BPES PTA.
  3. Awarding of completion certificates.

a.                   You will exit your car to receive your certificate from Mrs. Bialeski. 

b.                   Photos with Mrs. Bialeski may be taken here. 

  1. Photo Booth with 5th grade teachers - Your teachers will be at this station. You can exit your car and get pictures with your teachers.

.                     Parents may get out to take pictures of their child with teachers.

a.                   This is NOT a time for friends to take pictures with each other and teachers.


Come prepared

  • Be ready to get out of the car at the appropriate station.
  • Have cameras/phones ready to go when you get out of the car.
  • Get back in the car promptly after pictures are taken so that others can move through the line efficiently.



  • Students are encouraged to wear their 5th grade t-shirt.
  • Decorate your car, play music, hold up signs!


*If your child is not able to attend, their supplies will be held for them and returned to them in school, if they are an in person student, or made available for pick up at a later date.
