5th Grade Moving Up Ceremony


Dear 5th Grade Families,

In a short time, we will gather to celebrate the promotion of our scholars. We celebrate their growth and promise through this year’s theme: “And so the Adventure begins…” Our Moving Up Ceremony will take place on Monday June 19th at 9:30 a.m. in the Toquam cafeteria. We look forward to sharing this special occasion with you and ask that you prepare for it knowing the following:


We will begin promptly at 9:30 a.m. before it becomes too warm.  Please be sure that your child is in school by 9:00 a.m. and reports to their classroom.

We are asking that all families adhere to our three (3) seat limit per family due to limited seating and capacity.


Girls are asked to wear appropriate dresses, skirts, and blouses.  Dresses should have wide straps. Strapless dresses or spaghetti straps are not permitted.  Please choose shoes that are safe on stairs. 

Boys are asked to wear dress pants or shorts, a collared shirt with or without a tie, dress shoes or sandals.


Refreshments will be served outside weather permitting.  Scholars are allowed to leave with a family member after this short reception.  Your child’s teacher will have a sign-out sheet to ensure student safety.


There are parking lots in the front of the school (off of Ridgewood Ave.) and in the back of the school (off of Tom’s Rd.) that are available for parking.  Please only use properly designated parking areas in lots and on surrounding streets to allow for proper traffic flow.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. We look forward to our June 19th celebration!
