Upcoming 5th Grade Events

Whether you can believe it or not, you have a 5th Grade Student!

There will a lot of things to celebrate this year and if you want to help make it happen please contact our 5th Grade Committee Chair - Jen Farcas at

On Friday, May 12th, all 5th graders are invited to participate in the extremely fun Sports Night & Color Run!

Students & families must PRE-REGISTER prior to May 10th to be able to attend the event

The 5th Grade Committee has been hard at work planning exciting end-of-the-year events for the DCE 5th Graders.

We are offering the opportunity to purchase yard signs as a fundraiser to assist in providing lasting memories for our kiddos including Sports Night/Color Run, the Awards Ceremony, and the 5th Grade Celebration Day.

Make a statement with a customizable yard sign to celebrate your 5th grader and help support the 5th grade DCE events!

Yard signs will be 24"x18", full edge-to-edge printing with vibrant colors and include an aluminum lawn stake.

There are 2 customizable options available, with and without photo, for the same price of $20.


After purchase, be sure to upload your photo.

Order online.  Deadline to order is March 31

5th Grade Awards Night

May 18 - 5:30pm @ Creekside HS Auditorium

The awards night will be held on May 18 at 5:30pm in the Creekside High School Auditorium. This is a night to recognize each of the 5th grade students. All students will be individually presented their awards.

The 5th graders will dress nicely that evening. Nothing super formal is required, but fancier than normal school attire. 

The 5th grade slideshow will be played for our families to watch at the beginning of the awards night.

All 5th grade families are invited to attend this event. Please keep in mind that we have almost 200 students, therefore it will take a while to present awards to all students. 

5th Grade Celebration Day

May 23 @ DCE during School Hours

This celebration is a fun day exclusively for our 5th graders! 

This would be a great day for students to wear their 5th grade field trip shirts.

The students will get to dance to music played by our own DJ Frank, take fun photos with friends in the photo booth, compete against classmates in the game truck, PLUS play games, create fun crafts, and other activities and games. The 5th graders will end the celebration with a grade level BINGO game with prizes and popsicles. 

Pizza lunch (pizza, chips, drinks) from Papa John's will also be provided. If your child cannot eat pizza for dietary reasons, please plan on sending in a lunch or letting your teacher know that your child will be purchasing lunch from the cafeteria that day.

VOLUNTEERS: We will need 3 parent volunteers from each class to help out during the celebration on May 23rd. Volunteers will be needed from 8:30am to 1:30pm. If you would like to volunteer AND are available for the entire time, please email your teacher and let him or her know that you would like your name to be added to the list of parents. If your name is chosen, you will be notified. No siblings are allowed to attend.

**Anyone who would like to volunteer must have school access and be approved through the school system.**
