Sixth Grade Party: CRS Class of 2023
One of the most beloved traditions at Churchill Road School is the Sixth Grade Party. It’s a fun way to honor our CRS students as they get ready to advance to middle school, and every 6th grader looks forward to this special celebration of the friendships and memories they have made over the years.
Check back to find out the theme for the Class of 2023!
Class of 2023 Celebration event

The Fun Stuff: The celebration will include rides, inflatables, games, other fun activities, a DJ, lunch, and more — all in a fun outdoor party!
Questions? Please contact the 6th Grade Celebration Chairs at email@example.com.
Your student's ticket includes an all-access pass to all the fun at the party, along with lunch, snacks, treats, a digital memory book, and party goodies. Ticket purchases also support the Class of 2023 gift to CRS.
Check back for ticket sales in May 2023.
Note: Should this cost cause financial hardship, please email the Assistant Principal, Ms. Niccolls, to request assistance. All requests for support are confidential. This party is the highlight of the 6th gradersʼ year, and we want to make sure that all kids can attend.
Lunch & Other Treats
This year's party includes a boxed lunch from Chick-fil-A. Your student can choose either a chicken sandwich (Regular Box) or veggie wrap (Vegetarian Box) — you'll indicate which option your child prefers when placing your ticket order. Each boxed lunch comes with potato chips, fruit, a chocolate chip cookie, and bottled water. We'll also have Kona Ice, cake, and snacks available.
Rides, Games, Activities & More
This year's attractions include the perennial #1 favorite, the Go Racers (also known as the toilet bowl racers), Derby ride (inflatable horse race), Gravity Ball (basketball challenge), and mini-golf. In addition, there will be a DJ providing music and other entertainment throughout the party. Plus there will be lots of other games & activities — lots of fun is on the way!
We're celebrating each student's time at CRS with a digital memory book. Students will have the opportunity to create their pages (one per student; see an example) during WIN Time from May TBA-TBA (instructions will be available in Schoology on TBA). A link to download the completed digital memory book will be emailed to parents in late May. We'll also provide an option to download a zip file of all the pages to make a printed version with your preferred vendor.
Students should wear their 6th-Grade class t-shirts to the celebration. Hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen are a good idea too!
Volunteers can help with setup, supervising rides & activities, serving lunch, and clean-up. We will send more information to volunteers in advance of the party. Want to see the party? Volunteer!
When you arrive at CRS on the day of the party, please go to the Kiss and Ride parking lot to check in (don't go to the front office). Please do not park in the CRS parking lot as we need to reserve the bus lane spaces for the party vendors.
Check back for the volunteer sign-up in May 2023.
Why is there a ticket fee for the party? Each year we sell tickets to cover the cost of this unique, celebratory event unlike any other party the kids have experienced in their earlier elementary school years. The PTA's contribution and any remaining 6th Grade Class Funds help pay for the party, but these contributions do not cover all costs. This year's ticket fee of $50 is the same as in past years. If this fee poses a financial hardship, please email the Assistant Principal (Ms. Niccolls) for assistance. We want all kids to be able to attend!
What are the lunch options? Your student’s ticket includes a boxed lunch catered by Chick-fil-A. The Regular Box consists of a chicken sandwich, potato chips, fruit, a chocolate chip cookie, and bottled water. The Vegetarian Box substitutes a veggie wrap (mix of lettuce and cheese in a flaxseed flour flatbread) instead of a chicken sandwich. You may select either the Regular or Vegetarian lunch when purchasing your child’s ticket. (You can also choose not to select a lunch if allergy or other dietary constraints are an issue.) We'll also be offering Kona Ice, cake, and snacks at the party.
What’s the protocol for lunch? Students will be eating lunch outside, either at tables or on the grass. Students will be able to pick up their preordered lunch any time during the lunch period (11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.). Kona Ice will be available from 1:00 to 1:45 p.m., and water & snacks will be available throughout the party.
Can parents attend the party? Only parents who are volunteering at the event can attend the 6th-grade party. We need lots of volunteers, so many parents can join the fun. See the volunteer section above to signup. Parent volunteers do not need tickets.
What is the Class Gift to CRS? It is a CRS 6th grade tradition that the graduating class gives a token of appreciation in the form of a class gift to the school as they graduate and move on to middle school. Past class gifts have included a tile mural, a podium in Exploratory Arts, decorative pavers for the Kiss & Ride sidewalk, and the Bobcat costume, to name a few. The 2023 Class Gift is TBA.
