We can’t wait to celebrate our special 5th graders and are excited to carry on our many end-of-year traditions to create a fun and memorable final year for our children at Baywood.
Each year, the 5th grade class collects funds to cover end of year promotion activities. This all-inclusive fund will cover the following:
- Promotion ceremony and certificates
- End of year 5th grade party
- Class T-Shirt
- Lawn Sign
- Kickball game refreshments
- Teacher gifts
- and more!
We are asking for these funds one time to cover all costs. This year’s recommended donation amount is $80 per student. Please donate to this fund - across the District, these expenses are NOT covered in operating budgets.

5th Grade Baby Photo Contest
Please dig up those old baby photos and send them our way! 5th graders will have the opportunity to participate in a “Guess the Baby Photo Contest” at the End of Year Party. Prizes will be awarded for the most correct answers. If you would like to participate, please submit ONE baby photo using the following form.
Teacher Thank You Notes
Students will each write thank you notes to 3-5 past or present Baywood teachers during the school day. We will compile them and distribute these special notes to the teachers and staff.
