5th Grade Committee 


It feels like yesterday that our kiddos had their first day of Kindergarten, yet here we are beginning their final year of elementary school.  They have all come so far and have learned so much, making lots of special Nixon memories along the way.   


If you would like to participate in special events for your special graduating 5th grader, please sign up on the online Volunteer Central form. We will be in touch to coordinate volunteers. For questions regarding 5th grade events or initiatives please email 5thgradecommittee@nixonpto.org 


Fundraising - 5th graders organize and execute their own fundraisers to pay for 5th grade events. 


Upcoming Event: Suds & Sweets (Car wash and goodies sale) September 25th 12:00-3:00

Shirts - Traditionally, all 5th grade students sign the numbers of their graduating year and have custom shirts made to wear at all 5th grade events.


Social Experiences - We plan social experiences just for the 5th graders such as Paint Night where students were guided through the process of painting acrylic on canvas. 


Upcoming Event: Movie Night, September 10th time TBD

Service - In addition to the 5th grade school building jobs, students participate in a service project such as making holiday cards for elders. 

End of year fun Celebrations - Whether we plan a beach party or kickball tournament, it's important for all students to get together to celebrate the fun of being seniors! 

Wings of Wisdom - 4th grade parents host a brunch for 5th grade families prior to the school's graduation ceremonies as a way of paying it forward.
