More Saltdogs Information

Hello Parents/Guardians,

The 5th grade Saltdogs field trip is next Wednesday, August 23rd. We wanted to give you information so that you can plan accordingly. Students need to decide if they are going to bring a lunch from home or get one from school. We need to put in a lunch count to the cafeteria tomorrow. We eat our lunch at the Saltdogs stadium upon arrival.

A few things to keep in mind:

1.) Due to space, parents cannot sit by their student’s class during the game.

2.) You may purchase a Saltdogs baseball ticket, and sign your child out with your child’s fifth grade teacher if you want them to sit by you (in another location).

3.) If a parent would like to sign their child out at the conclusion of the Saltdogs game they may do so, however they will need to get us a note or letter ahead of time.

4.) Students are encouraged to wear their walkathon t-shirt from last year.

5.) We ask that student please do not bring money to the game.

For the field trip students should bring a water bottle, and a hat if they wish. Sunscreen should be applied at home before the child comes to school.

Thank you,

Prescott 5th grade team

Salt Dogs Field Trip!!

Saltdogs Parent Letter

To Parents/Guardians of 5th Grade Students: On Wednesday, August 23, LPS 5th grade students will attend the Lincoln Saltdogs baseball game in Haymarket Park. This community event is made possible by the generous sponsorship of the Lincoln Saltdogs organization. Thanks go to many parents who have also contributed. Free bus transportation and admission will be provided for all students. The first pitch will be at 11:00 am. School staff will accompany their students to the game that is expected to end about 1:30 pm. LPS and charter busses will transport students from school to the game, then return them to school prior to dismissal. Students may bring a sack lunch and refillable water bottle to the game or they may order lunch from the school cafeteria. Students should come to school with sunscreen applied, as they will be outside for several hours. We also recommend that students wear a hat. This field trip can provide many opportunities for 5th graders to apply what they are learning in a variety of curricular areas. It is also an effective and fun way for students to learn about their community and some of the outstanding resources Lincoln has to offer its citizens. During the game LPS students will lead the singing of the national anthem, serve as guest announcers, and participate in activities between innings. Students will remain with their teachers during the game. The public will also be admitted to this game, however no alcoholic beverages or peanut products will be sold. Parents are welcome to purchase tickets and attend the game, but they will not be able to sit with their students. We look forward to making this field trip a special day for our 5th grade students as they begin their final year of elementary school. If you have any questions about this event, please contact your student’s 5th grade teacher.

What to bring to 2017-2018

5th Grade students do not need to bring anything except themselves, appropriate clothing, the desire to learn, the willingness to work and the grit to keep going when things get tough.

We will provide pencils, paper, planners and homework. Students will want to bring a backpack to transport their homework folder and planner between home and school please do not send any other personal items including pencils or notebooks or erasers or spinners or squibbles or pets or anything that could be a distraction in class.

The End Is Near!

Don’t forget these important things:

  1. 5th Grade Commencement Ceremony will begin at 6:30pm on Tuesday, May 23rd. Students should report to their homerooms by 6:15pm.
  2. The Prescott 5th Grade Team is very proud of all our students… we love you, you believe in you, we expect great things from each of you.
  3. This may be the end of elementary school… but this is only the first quarter. The game isn’t over. You have to keep playing hard to make it all the way.
  4. Never give up.

Bowling Day!

The 5th Grade Class will be going bowling on May 24th!

On the last day of school, 5th graders will be celebrating by spending time at Sun Valley Lanes. We will be looking for Level 2 parent volunteers to join us. Parents will be selected on a first come, first serve basis and will be responsible for their own bowling costs.

Walk-A-Thon is Coming!

The Walkathon will be here before we know it! Teachers will be collecting T-Shirt Sizes from your students this week. If you know what size T-Shirt your son or daughter wears, please let him or her know or email your child’s teacher so that everyone gets the size they need. Thanks.
