Fifth Grade – Class of 2019
5th Grade at Morris Brandon . . . Big Responsibilities, Big Fun, Big Memories!!
Morris Brandon has a proud tradition of celebrating our fifth graders! These school leaders are entrusted with much responsibility as they finish out their time at Brandon. In return, there is a long list of activities and events and celebrations for them to enjoy all year! Responsibilities include acting as safety patrol to keep our Bees safe in the bus line and in carpool, raising and lowering the American flag on the front lawn, and largely running the Field Day activities for the younger classes in May. They will also have the opportunity to become a GREAT AMERICAN by learning and reciting some key pieces of history.

Great Americans Program (Monday, August 13 – Friday, September 28, 2018)
The GREAT AMERICANS program is an exciting challenge and long-standing tradition for Morris Brandon 5th graders. While all 5th grade teachers support this program and encourage each student to participate, the program is completely optional and not required. However, we hope that each student will take on the challenge and be named a Great American! We will recognize each student with a picnic and at the 5th Grade Celebration later this year. Last year, 65 fifth grade students achieved this great accomplishment!
Download and print the Great American Requirements Packet for your student HERE.
We need 2 parents for every assessment day to determine if a student has learned a requirement. You can sign up for one, two or all of the shifts for your class! Learn more about volunteering HERE. Sign up HERE.
