    Special Fifth Grade Activities
    Fifth Grade T-shirt: Each year the fifth grade has a special t-shirt to celebrate their final year at Willow Creek Elementary.
    Patriots’ Day: As the culminating event of the Revolutionary War Unit, we live a day in the life of a Patriot. We have activities during the day which include historical crafts, games and school. That evening, we attend a reception at a parent’s house to deepen and finalize the experience. We will need numerous volunteers to make this event occur. Patriot's Day is held on November 7th.
    Manners Luncheon: On February 14th, we will have a luncheon which is hosted by the parents. The children will be able to practice their newly learned manners.
    Fifth Grade Garden: Throughout the school year, the children will be tending to a garden through their Science classes.
