Information about 4th grade celebration

Parents of 4th Graders: June 5th is going to be a day of looking back, looking forward and celebrating both!  From approximately 9:00-11:30 a.m we will have an opportunity to come together as a grade at Woodside for games, yearbook signing, memory making at a photo booth, and a pizza lunch with a fun dessert.  After that, the students will board a bus and head to HHS for the Panther Premiere.  The event will bring together the 4th grade students from all four elementary schools to play games, watch ComedySportz and begin to mingle together prior to entering Silver Spring Intermediate School next fall.  In order to make this day a blast for our kids we are going to need parent help on June 4th with decorations and set-up and June 5th with the planned activities. Please watch for a sign up very soon!
