The PTA’s 5th Grade Committee organizes events throughout the year to celebrate our 5th graders!  We are planning a lot of fun activities and we need your help!  Please volunteer to help with one or more of the below activities. Sign up details are below. 

The t-shirt that you will get is for your child(ren).  As such, the size options are only youth sizes.

Activities are funded by the CES PTA along with 5th grade families. The CES PTA requests that each 5th grade family contribute $40.00 per 5th grade student.  Contributions fund 5th grade t-shirts (worn throughout the year), breakfasts, class picnic, and school gifts.  Participation in schools out activities may require additional costs and some activities may require food donations and volunteers.
