Grade 5 Promotion Ceremony

Paula Sandahl

Dear Parents/Guardians of Grade 5 Students,

Please join us for a special occasion, the celebration of your child’s final year at George Hersey Robertson Intermediate School. The GHR Grade 5 Promotion Ceremony will be held on the last day of school, June 14, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. for approximately 1 hour.  This is a traditionally modest commemoration of your child’s elementary years and is always well attended.

 Each 5th grade student will deposit a letter written about him or herself into a “Time Capsule” to be opened upon their graduation from high school.

 Occasions like this are often bittersweet; we feel sad to see them go, but pleased to know of all the opportunities students have throughout their middle school years. Our fifth grade students are ready! "Our imagination is the only limit to what we can hope to have in the future."—Charles F. Kettering

 Please note, the Promotion Ceremony will be held in the GHR gymnasium and parking assistance will be available due to limited parking available.

 I hope to see you all on June 14th! 


Thank you for your consideration, 

Jennifer DeRagon
