Dear 5th Grade Families,


We have some exciting updates from your 5th Grade Graduation Committee. So, first and foremost, thank you to all who are part of our 5th Grade Graduation Committee! We really appreciate your time and commitment to making 5th grade a memorable year. Now, for the updates – please read through this carefully:



5th Grade Party: Saturday June 10, 2023 3:00pm – 6:00pm – Dave and Buster’s, Bellevue

5th Grade Graduation: Thursday June 15, 2023 at 2:20pm – Jing Mei Elementary School

5th Grade Celebration: Thursday June 15, 2023 following the graduation in the covered outdoors area



Each year, 5th grade students and families participate in fundraising to raise money for graduation, celebration, and party. Thank you to all families who supported the bake sale, attended Mod Pizza night, and continue to support our fundraising efforts throughout the year. Our biggest fundraiser is the Brown Bear Car Wash tickets. Each student/family is expected to sell around 10 Brown Bear Car Wash tickets at $12/ticket. If this presents a hardship for you, please e-mail back so we can support you. If you have completed selling all your tickets and would like to help us sell more, let us know. Here is our timeline to sell car wash tickets:

–Week of February 6th Students will receive car wash tickets that they are responsible for selling.

–Students/Families sell to their friends, families, and co-workers, and turn in the money raised to the Front Office.

–Friday March 17th: All money from the car wash ticket sales must be turned in to the Front Office.



Thank you to Moneta K, Sue S, and Christin A for leading this charge. On the same day that students receive the car wash tickets, students will also be checking for their correct names on their hoodie. The back of the hoodie will have each student’s English first name and their Chinese name. If you do not want your student’s name listed on the back of the hoodie, please let us know as soon as possible. See attached for the design of the hoodie created by Moneta. We will also be sending out an ordering form through ParentSquare – much like the LNY shirts post for you to be able to order. Our hope is that we are able to provide a hoodie for each 5th grade student through our fundraising efforts and families are able to purchase additional hoodies for themselves for $25 each hoodie.


Finally, you’ll continue to hear from us as we progress towards the end of the year including communication about the yearbook and creating a legacy gift. For now, please save the dates, sell Brown Bear car wash tickets, and look out for a ParentSquare post to order 5th grade hoodies in February. Let us know if you have any questions!

五年级毕业委员会有一些令人兴奋的更新。首先,非常感谢所有参与我们五年级毕业委员会的成员!我们非常感谢你们的贡献和时间,使五年级成为一个难忘的一年。下面是更新内容 :



五年级派对: 2023年6月10日星期六下午3:00至6:00 – Dave and Buster’s, Bellevue

五年级毕业典礼: 2023年6月15日星期四下午2:20 – 精美小学

五年级庆祝活动: 2023年6月15日星期四毕业典礼后在户外覆盖区域



每年,五年级学生和家庭参与筹款,为毕业典礼、庆祝活动和派对筹集资金。感谢所有支持烘培销售、参加Mod Pizza之夜的家庭,并在整个一年中继续支持我们的筹款工作。我们最大的筹款活动是Brown Bear洗车券。每个学生/家庭需要售出约10张Brown Bear洗车券,每张$12。如果这对你来说是困难的,请回复电子邮件,我们会支持你。如果你已经售完所有票,并希望帮助我们销售更多,请告诉我们。这是我们销售洗车券的时间表:






感谢Moneta K、Sue S和Christin A带领这项工作。在学生收到洗车券的同一天,学生还将检查他们的名字是否正确。衬衫背面将有每个学生的英文名和他们的中文名。如果你不希望你的学生的名字列在衬衫背面,请尽早告诉我们。请参阅Moneta创建的衬衫设计。我们还将通过ParentSquare发送订购表格 – 就像LNY衬衫帖一样,供您订购。我们希望通过我们的筹款工作为每个五年级学生提供一件连帽衫,家长可以为自己每件$25购买额外的连帽衫。


最后,你们将继续收到我们的消息,随着我们逐渐接近年底,包括关于年鉴和创建纪念性礼物的消息。现在,请保存日期,销售Brown Bear洗车券,并注意在2月ParentSquare发布的订购五年级连帽衫。如果您有任何问题, 请告诉我们!
