5th Grade Pay Day Celebration

Pay Day Celebration is a culminating experience that 5th Grade students at NHES work toward the entire 4th quarter. They earn "money" for positive behavior, good citizenship, and excellent academics during the last 9 weeks of school. It is an exciting afternoon filled with games, food, music, tye-dying shirts, water balloons, water slides, and so much more. Pay Day Celebration is an exhilarating way to end the school year!
