Return to 5th Grade Events

Sweatshirt & Year-End Celebration


Each 5th grade student gets the opportunity to take part in some great events at Lakeridge. The 5th grade fees go toward a sweatshirt for each 5th grader, the special 5th grade-only end of year celebration, and help support the 5th grade musical.

5th Grade Sweatshirt

The sweatshirt is a tradition for all Island 5th graders (including Island Park, Northwood and West Mercer). Many times for 6th grade musical performances, and the the all-class picture, they will have the kids wear their sweatshirts.   Note that there is no Youth XL as the Adult Small is very similar in size.

  • Color: TBD based on feedback from PTA team members from all four schools. For the last few years, the sweatshirts have been grey.
  • Size Chart: (Chest Measurement) Youth Large (30/32), Adult Small (34/36), Adult Medium (38/40), Adult Large (42/44), Adult XL (46/48)
  • Last name printed on the back  (Note: If you know your child has the same last name as another student, you can request to have a first initial added. E.g., H Thomas. This will not be done automatically.)
  • Full name printed on the front in very tiny font (Note: all kids from all elementary schools are printed on the front. You can opt out of having the last name on the back, the full name on the front, or both. Please pay close attention to these options when you complete the Fees/Ask form online.
  • A lot of kids will opt to have their friends sign  the back of their sweatshirts

5th Grade Year-End Celebration

This party is for the 5th graders only and is scheduled for June.  There are bouncy houses, lots of food, and many fun activities.  This is a party that celebrates the end of their elementary years and the passage onto Middle School.
