Fifth Grade Culmination Day is quickly approaching! As a special part of this year’s ceremony we are excited to be incorporating flowers in honor of each and every teacher & staff member at the school who has taught or supported your child during his or her time at Franklin. We are asking graduates and their families to bring in a flower for each teacher they have had at Franklin, as well as aides and other educators they have been influenced by during their time here. The morning before culmination the children will be distributing the flowers into vases for each teacher. The flowers will be given to the teachers and support staff after culmination.
Tell me more!
What do we bring and when?
Please have your child bring flowers to drop off on TUESDAY, June 5th. We will have collection tables set up by the basketball / handball courts.
How many flowers should we bring?
We recommend bringing a total of 15 individual stems or more (for classroom teachers, administrators, P.E. teachers, specialists such as the school psychologist and reading specialists, etc) though any number is appreciated. If you are inclined to bring more than 15 stems, please do! We will use all of them!
What kind of flowers?
Any kind of flower is great! If your child has a favorite flower or color, please bring it! Trader Joe’s, Pavilions and Whole Foods all sell great flowers, as do the many flower shops in the area. If you have flowers blooming in your own garden, those would be wonderful too! When selecting flowers, please remember that longer stems are better for these arrangements. Do not worry about wrapping or embellishments – we only need flowers!
Please make sure your child transports the flowers carefully (no stuffing in backpacks, please!) and finds us at drop off on June 5th on the basketball courts.
This beautiful addition to our ceremony decor will only be possible with the participation of every one of our graduates. Please mark your calendars and join us in this last group activity before the end of the school year!
