Fifth Grade Dinner
The Fifth Grade Dinner is the big send-off for Taylor's graduating class.  The program includes dinner, entertainment and presentation of certificates to all graduating fifth graders. This year's event will be held Thursday, June 13, 2002.  

Each child may bring 2 adults to the event. However NO SIBLINGS are allowed due to space and cost considerations.  Teachers (present and former) and Taylor administrative staff are also invited.

We still need parents to chair two committees.  We really need someone to step up and chair the Slideshow Committee.  As part of the entertainment at the dinner, parents have developed either a slideshow or video with highlights from the students' life here at Taylor.  The school has software and equipment we can use …so if you have video or computer graphics skills, or experience using computer-based presentation or moviemaking software, please volunteer!  

The Volunteer Committee Chair is responsible for recruiting four to six 4th grade parents to help on the night of the dinner seating guests, serving food, and cleaning up.  Several 4th grade parents have already volunteered to help, so part of the job is already done!

Please call Stephanie Sampson if you are interested in chairing or participating in either one of these activities at 703/516-9439.

Also, please send in your photos for the Yearbook to your child's homeroom.  We are looking for pictures of any school-related activity from kindergarten on up.  On the back of the photo, give us the name(s) of the student in the picture, the event and date, and your name.  You will get back all photos at the dinner in June.  Contact Kate Cruickshank with any questions (703/841-1865).

Be part of the fun and volunteer to work on a committee.
