6th Grade Families

As hard as it is to believe, we are in the 4th marking period. Our sixth grade children are reaching the end of their elementary school experience. To celebrate the student’s right-of- passage, Conestoga Elementary will hold a graduation ceremony during school hours. In addition, each student is invited to participate in a parent organized pool party after the ceremony. Dinner will be provided for the students. We ask you to mark your calendars with the following information:

Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Graduation Ceremony 1:45 – 3 p.m. (family invited)

Marticville Middle School Auditorium

Pool Party 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. (students only)

Conestoga Community Pool

We are pleased to inform you, arrangements have been made to transport the entire sixth grade class to the pool by bus. The students will be picked up at the Marticville Middle School after the graduation ceremony.   Students should bring appropriate swimming attire along with towel, goggles, etc. to school on the day of the event. It will be the responsibility of each parent/guardian to make arrangements for pickup at the end of the pool party.

We are asking you as parents/guardians to assist by providing the requested photos by April 30, 2017. In addition, we are asking that each family make a food and/or supplies donation. A SignUpGenius for the donation along with more specific details of the event will be provided at a later date.

Mr. Mattern and Mr. Schettler will be traveling on the bus with the students to the pool. At this time to supervise the children at the pool, we have eight parent volunteers, two lifeguards, and the pool manager. However, we understand that for some children there may be special circumstances such as health issues or other concerns that you feel necessitate your presence at the party. If that is the case please contact Bobbie Sue Heistand or write a note at the bottom of the permission letter saying that you feel you need to attend and are willing to also help with the responsibilities of the party.

We would like to thank you in advance for your support of this tradition and allowing us to show our sixth graders one last burst of “Conestoga Pride”! If you have any questions or concerns please contact Bobbie Sue Heistand at bobbiesue1991@comcast.net or leave a message at (717) 284-3822.
