FIFTH GRADE PROMOTION

The end-of-year promotion ceremony for the fifth grade students is scheduled for June 6th from 9:45 AM – 10:45 AM. Students and their two (2) ticketed guests will enjoy light refreshments and an academic awards assembly in the Multi-purpose room at Montpelier Elementary. Invitations and tickets will be mailed to the students’ addresses on record on May 17th if there are no outstanding debts (such as overdue or lost library books, damaged or lost textbooks, and/or returned checks). Once all financial obligations are met, the tickets will be released.

ESTIMATION JARS

Who said math couldn’t be fun? Each grade level created a jar containing a quantity of items and displayed them in our lobby display case. Students from each class submitted their estimations of just how many items were in those jars. The student whose estimate was the closest, won the jar! Winners were: Sydney Alexander, Kevin Ha, Braxton Onya, Aliette Johnson, Kymoni Willis, Destiny Fowobaje, Kayla Brown, and Wale Aderojou. Congratulations!

JUMP-ROPE-FOR-HEART

Jump-Rope-For-Heart was held on April 19th. What a wonderful opportunity this was to participate in a worthy cause of saving lives while having fun and being fit! Our totals were just over $3,000.00! Thank you, Montpelier for your support and special thanks to Coach Mitsak and Coach Wade for coordinating this worthy event.

ATTENTION 5TH GRADE FAMILIES

Recently, blue registration forms (PA-14) were sent home with all fifth grade students along with a letter explaining the need to provide current proof of residency (deed, current lease, property tax bill, mortgage statement) and updated registration information. This is required prior to the students advancing to middle school at the end of this school year. It is especially important for those students who have been enrolled at Montpelier since kindergarten…but is required of ALL fifth graders. If you just returned the blue form without current proof of residency, your child’s folder is incomplete and will not be processed for middle school. The middle school will not accept incomplete files and will require paperwork completion prior to starting school in the fall.

REQUIREMENT FOR “SHARED HOUSING” FAMILIES

“Shared Housing” is when the registering parent/guardian is NEITHER the lease holder nor the property owner. When this occurs, the lease holder/property owner AND the registering parent/guardian provide the school with a notarized “Shared Housing Disclosure” and the deed, lease, property tax bill or mortgage statement of the lease holder/property owner. (Two pieces of mail showing the date, name of parent/guardian and address will be requested.) PGCPS now requires that these documents be updated and resubmitted each year.
