End of Year Activities

May Fete Parade

Addison participates in the Palo Alto May Fete Parade every year. PTA volunteers create a parade float featuring artwork and crafts made by Addison students. All Addison students and families are welcome to march with the float!

Teacher Appreciation Week

Parents and children take a week to show their appreciation of Addison’s teachers in May. Room parents generally organize each classroom’s teacher appreciation activities. Parents also host a luncheon for teachers that is organized through the PTA.

Field Day

The PTA creates an all day field day event for the students during the last week of school. Parent participation makes this a special event for the children and parents.

5th Grade Graduation

Each year the 4th grade class hosts a graduation reception for 5th grade students and their families. The event is partially funded by the PTA and organized by 4th grade room parents and volunteers.


The yearbook is a fun tradition at Addison, and students look forward to getting the yearbook at the end of each year.
