Graduation + Year Book 2016   — Latest version as of 2016-03-30 12:38:54


We are very excited to be planning this event. As always, we need some help from our TNS community:


There will be a party directly after the ceremony. 4th graders are warmly invited to celebrate with their 5th grade pals! This is traditionally planned by 4th grade families, so we would be grateful if a few of you would volunteer (that way the parents of the graduates can relax and enjoy the day). We already have the venue and a cake nailed down. Contact Helen Martineau ( for details.

5th Grade Families Photos

We will have a slide show at the ceremony showing your kids. We need 3 high-resolution digital photos:

  • Baby picture (label it: firstname-lastname-baby.jpg)
  • Toddler or preK-K picture (label it: firstname-lastname-toddler.jpg)
  • Current photo (label it: firstname-lastname-current.jpg)

Please send in digital, high-res photos to this Dropbox folder or, if you only have hard copies, drop them in the envelope outside the PTA room. Deadline: May 15 (please send them in promptly!)

Also, there will be a photo shoot of the 5th graders. These photos will go in the yearbook, decorate the gym, and then be given to each family. The date of the photo shoot is Tuesday, March 29th during school. Please contact Laurie Schulwulf if you can help out that day: Laurie Schulwolf (

Senior Dues

We need to pay for caps, gowns, decorations, and photos, party expenses, and yearbook, so we need for all 5th graders to send in $60 (check made out to The Neighborhood School PTA and given to their teachers). If this is more than you can pay, no child will of course be turned away, please pay what you can. If you can spare more, please do so to help out our fellow families and the PTA. You can also pay via PayPal below.

Thank you!
The Graduation Committee
