     2018/2019 5th-Grade Activities

    Co-chairs Danielle DeHoratiusLeigh Gourmand and Jessica Wingerter

    The tradition at RES has long been to make our 5th-graders' last year unforgettable in many ways. The RES PTO 5th-grade committee, led by 5th-grade parents, organizes activities and special events to celebrate our 5th-grade students during their final year at RES.

    We provide each student with a yearbook complete with baby pictures and photos from each of their years spent at RES, as well as a slideshow showcased at the end of the year.

    We will coordinate recognition class gifts at the end of the year.  

    We will host a special party later this year, Party contact, Jessica Wingerter and we will also organize a fabulous year-end graduation ceremony, Graduation contact, Jannie Lau

    THE YEARBOOK
    Once you are registered online, we will need from you one photo of your child as a baby and any shots from their years at Radnor Elementary School and then create a free account at barksdale.pixami.com

    1. Select “Photo Post” and register for free. Enter your state, city, and school to find Radnor Elementary.
    2. Upload your photos to the existing corresponding folders (should you not find the appropriate folder, download your photos in the “Miscellaneous” folder with a descriptive photo name
    3. Submit your child's baby picture in the “Baby Pictures” folder with your child’s teacher’s name (e.g., “Serpico for Mr. Serpico’s students.”

    Baby photos must be uploaded by November 25, 2018
    Other photos must be uploaded by March 15, 2019

    These dates are fixed as per Barksdale's deadline constraints

    Notes: Photos from non-school events such as birthday parties, sporting events, summer gatherings, etc. cannot be used in the yearbook. We make every effort to include photos of every child in the 5th-grade yearbook so the more photos downloaded on Barksdale.com the more chances to see your child’s happy face on many pages. Some of the RES events we would love to receive photos from are: Kindergarten events, 2nd-grade events, End of year parties, 4th Grade Chorus & Concerts, Trunk or Treat, Field Day, Bee Man Field Trip, Recorder Concert, Holiday Parties, Circus, Potluck dinner and so many more!

    Important: Families are not permitted to take pictures during the performances of the Musical Theater. Professional photos will be shot and we will be able to use them as well as those from last year's performance.
