Fifth Grade Clap-Out Reminder When: Friday, June 10,2022 The lower elementary students of Justus Gage will line the hallways and clap and cheer for our awesome fifth graders as they walk the halls for the last time as students of our school. Our hope is that you will meet them as they exit the building. We would appreciate it if you could decorate your cars with signs, streamers, balloons and or window paint to celebrate the hard work and dedication your students have put into their elementary years. Fifth graders will be dismissed about 10 minutes earlier (11:46) than the rest of the school so be sure to get in the carline about 20 minutes before dismissal tomorrow. Once your student is in the car with you, you can parade them around the school and through the community. If you are unable to join us, or if your child will be riding the bus that day, we will wait with them until regular dismissal. Thanks for supporting our fifth grade students. 5th Grade Teaching Staff & Mr. Henry
