5th Grade End of Year Activities

It's hard to believe that our 5th graders are just weeks away from saying goodbye to elementary school. The fifth grade teachers and room parents have put together special activities for the final week to help celebrate their years at Spalding.

Here is a schedule of 5th grade activities for the week. Parents are welcome to many events, and we will be asking for donations for some events soon.

May 23rd: Monday
Regular day but 5th grade has free dress all week.

May 24th: Tuesday
5th Grade Ice Cream Social at noon in the courtyard.
Volunteers are needed to help with serving and set up. Please contact Paige Zaparaniuk if you can help please email pkgallito@gmail.com. Kids sign yearbooks after the sundaes.

May 25th: Wednesday
5th Grade AWARD CEREMONY @ 8:00 a.m. in the cafeteria (parents/family encouraged to attend)

Talent show- time TBA depends on when we can use the gym or cafeteria (due to space issues, the talent show is for the kids and teachers only!)

8:00 a.m: 5th grade SLIDE SHOW in Media Center
12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m: 5th grade dance/party in gym
2:00 p.m: 5th grade "walk" - bring your tissues!
3:30-5:30 p.m: 5th grade POOL party at MTC
Come celebrate the  start of a new chapter for our kids and cool off at the pool! Drop off is okay, but kids who are NOT members will need to be picked up by 5:30pm, and members will need to have a guardian present after 5:30.   Lifeguards will be present for the party. lost and found

Spalding Drive Parents

A large bin of long forgotten coats/jackets has been turned in to the Lost and Found. Please encourage your child to take another look. One student found one from the time of the Student Council elections!





In 2014-2015, all visitors were required to sign in at our front office through the Raptor system.  Volunteers who completed the online training were able to sign in as a volunteer.  Many of you encountered trouble signing in as a volunteer since you had not completed the training, and just signed in as a visitor.  This will not be allowed this year.  If you volunteer with students, you will need to complete the online training and sign in as a volunteer.  The deadline for completing this training is September 30, 2015.  After that date, you will no longer be able to volunteer in the school until you have completed the training course.  Please allow 48 hours for your application to be processed before you visit a school to volunteer.  The training is valid for two (2) years and will be "attached" to all of your students at any Fulton County School.

Does every person need to complete the registration process and abuse reporting training?  No. A parent acting in the role of a parent is not required to register or complete the child abuse reporting training. Examples include visitors to the school for: parent/teacher conferences, 504/IEP meetings, school wide and classroom programs, eating lunch with their child, or any visit to sign in or check out their student. Visitors must however sign-in at the front desk and offer their government identification to be scanned into the visitor identification system.

Get ahead of the game and complete your online volunteer training this summer!

We want our school to be the type of school where you feel welcome to volunteer…it truly takes a team effort and we know we could not do what we do without the support of our parents and volunteers.  If you are unable to access the training site, please feel free to come and use our computers to complete the training.
