5th grade camping trip
May 3 – May 5 all-day

Welcome to Cascadia’s 5th Grade parents-organized camping trip at Cornet Bay Retreat Center. The centerpiece of the camping ground is a large grassy meadow on a bay, surrounded by old-growth trees. It is safe, roomy and well-equipped for a weekend of child play and parent relaxation. What a fantastic opportunity to create lasting memories before graduation!

Movie Night
May 3 @ 6:00 pm

Join us on Friday, May 3rd for another Cascadia Family Movie Night

Come join your classmates for a cozy good time on Friday, May 3rd. Siblings are of course welcome! Bring blankets and pillows to cozy up on the gym floor for the movie. Low-backed chairs are welcome *in the back* near the bleachers so as to not block the views of those behind, but bring a towel or blanket so they don’t scuff the floors. The Commons will open at 5:30pm for families that want to bring their dinner to eat there (no food or drink in the gym, please). Move starts at 6:00pm.

Enter the building through the Commons doors. The main entrance will be locked.
Note: This is not a drop-off event. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
