5th Grade Memory Book

posted Nov 18, 2016, 7:56 AM by Laura Giuggio
Dear Parents, Guardians and Faculty,

 It is time for the Center School 5th Grade Memory Book!  For those of you who are new to Center School or your 5th grader is your eldest child, this book is the perfect keepsake. This has been a tradition at Center since 1986 when photos, highlighting school activities, were copied onto paper, the papers stapled together and a "book" given to each 5th grader.  As technology has become more sophisticated so have the memory books.  Since 2005, parents have worked closely with School Annual, a division of Jostens, to create beautiful, 84-page, full-colored books filled with many memories of our children during their years at Center School.

 The only way these books can truly celebrate our children's years at Center is by having parents/guardians and teachers submit photos.  So search your cameras, phones, tablets, computers, etc.... for all those great Center School memories!  Here is some helpful information to get you started:

Kindergarten (2011-2012): the class play, field trip to Randall's Farm


1st Grade (2012-2013): field trip to Hitchcock Center


2nd Grade (2013-2014): egg drop, powerful presentations, Norman Rockwell Museum and Little Red Schoolhouse field trips


3rd Grade (2014-2015): field trips to the Springfield Science Museum and Old Sturbridge Village, Author's Tea (animal presentations)


4th Grade (2015-2016): field trips to CT Science Museum, The Big E and MT.Tom; the play/musical (School House Rock), orchestra concert


5th Grade (2016-2017): Carnival, orchestra/band/chorus concerts, VIP presentations, Kindergarten buddies


For all grades: 1st and last day of school, field day, Halloween, Halloween Hustle, T.I.E.S., Helping Hands, lots of candid photos in the classroom and special subjects, any event I overlooked, etc...
