Dear Parents of 5th Grade Students,


We would like to introduce the PTO co-chairs of the 5th Grade Activities Committee, Ashlee Few and Christine Baumann. It is an LWE tradition to have memorable events and activities to celebrate our 5th graders. This year, our theme - chosen by students - is “Anchors Away!”


To ensure we have proper funding, a $36.00 activity fee per student is requested for:


Ø  One “Class of 2027 Anchors Away!” T-Shirt

Ø  Picnic at Webb Bridge Park – lunch and games provided (5/15/20)

Ø  Yearbook signing party with light refreshments (yearbook sold separately)

Ø  One 8x10 class photo

Ø  Promotion ceremony and small reception held at LWE (5/22/20)

Ø  Private pool party at Windward Lake Club – lunch provided and includes DJ/games (5/22/20)

Ø  Student, Teacher and Parent Capture the Flag Tournament (TBD)

Ø  Philanthropy Project (TBD)


Legacy Gift

Each 5th grade class leaves a legacy gift to LWE. Previous examples are the metal Lake Windward letters on the front of the school, the podium for the stage, the new “Wally” costume and the painted rock garden.  We are working with our 5th grade teachers and admin team on the Legacy Gift options; more to come. Our students may host several bake sales in the spring to raise any additional funding needed for the legacy gift. 



We will need many volunteers to make this a fun and rewarding 5th grade year for our students.  Please consider volunteering for:


Ø  Philanthropy Project

Ø  Kickball Tournament

Ø  Legacy Gift

Ø  Promotion Celebration

Ø  Bake Sales

Ø  Pool Party

Ø  Webb Bridge Park Picnic

NEW THIS YEAR- SAVE THE DATE! On Monday, Dec. 9, 5th graders will attend an extended, day-long field trip to Rock Eagle 4-H Center in Eatonton, Ga., adjacent to the Oconee National Forest. Students will participate in three classes, and have lunch and dinner as well. Transportation will be provided by coach bus. This field trip will have a separate cost associated with it. More details will be provided later in the school year.


Thank you for your support of our 5th graders and these events for the year!


Ashlee Few and Christine Baumann
