Boones Ferry Primary School has made an incredible tradition of celebrating their 5th graders in June each year! After a heartwarming Slideshow showcasing each student a certificate of a well earned achievement is given to them on stage by their wonderful 5th grade teachers. Along with the whole school, families gather on the sidewalk between Boones Ferry Primary School and Inza R. Wood Middle School, where the students will attend 6th grade the following year. The 5th graders walk to Wood Middle School under a rainbow of bubbles blown by all the excited family and friends. Some Moms can be seen wiping tears away as they see their son or daughter walk past with their long time friends. The 5th graders and their families return to school for a reception with refreshments and lots of pictures to preserve for a lifetime!
We always need 4th grade parents to volunteer the day of the 5th Grade Celebration. This helps them see how it will go for their children who will be going through it the next year. This is where our PSS shines! Our first class 4th grade parents help so our 5th grade parents are able to enjoy the celebration with their child by not having to volunteer that day. 5th grade parents do all the planning and preparation with 4th grade parents help and make it what they envision using our tradition as a guide. It is a well oiled machine, but needs volunteers to keep up the high quality fun!
If you are a 4th or 5th grade parent, please look for emails and fliers requesting help for planning or contact the PSS by email, firstname.lastname@example.org, and someone will get back to you.
