5th Grade Blue Team

Dear families of the Pine View Fifth grade class of 2018-2019:


As many of you may have heard, the entire Pine View fifth grade class has been involved in a Ballroom Dance unit in their Physical Education class. Each year gets better and better; the students have picked up the various dances quickly, and are working on polishing them for our Celebration Dance being held on Thursday night, February 21st in the Pine View gym from 6:30 to 7:30 (please arrive by 6:15 so we can get partners organized). Parents, friends, and family are invited to come and watch our students show off their dance moves!


Students are asked to dress formally—boys in a suit and tie, girls in dresses or skirts. Please do not feel that you have to go out and buy new clothing for your child; just have him or her dress in the nicest clothes you already have in the closet.
In years past, we have asked students to bring in a food or drink item to share with the group. Each class will be asked to be responsible for the following:


Mr. Ross and Mrs. Wozniak’s classes—Drinks (water, juice)
Mr. Vitkus and Ms. Rader’s classes—Salty snacks (pretzels, chips)
Ms. Drown’s and Mrs. Lenerz’s classes—Healthy snacks (fruit, vegetables, dips)
Ms. Barber and Mrs. White’s classes—Sweet snacks (cookies, brownies)
When asked if the Celebration Dance is mandatory, our response is: 5th grade students are expected to attend. This is a once in a lifetime event. If it is easier for parents, students may remain at Pine View after school so parents don’t have to make two trips to school. Please let Coach Ballard know if you plan on having your child stay, and make sure that you are here to take your child home by 7:15.


Sincerely,


Coach Ballard liz.ballard@sarasotacountyschools.net
