Welcome to 5th grade! The 5th Grade Committee is responsible for organizing and managing the many events that occur throughout a student’s senior year at SPARK. During the events throughout the year, we aim to strengthen the connection between the students and families, raise money for specific events and the class trip, and serve the community. We develop a budget and work closely with the PTO to ensure that all activities are financially efficient and organized.

Our newsletter and emails will inform you of 5th grade activities only. Please make sure you are receiving the weekly SPARK-e and reading your teacher emails for news covering school and classroom activities.

If you’re interested in volunteering or co-chairing one of the 5th grade events this year, please contact the 5th Grade Co-Chairs.
