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.

5th Grade Dues
5th Grade Dues will be $35 per student. This includes payment for the 5th Grade Senior T-shirt, which will be worn to numerous events throughout the year, and will help fund some events, such as the 5th Grade Dance, Movie Night and Awards Banquet. Please also consider sponsoring a student. All students will receive a T-shirt.
To be successful, we will need support and help from you. Thank you to everyone who has already volunteered for committees. Below is a list of the events that occur throughout the year.
