Convert point feature class to square polygon (points represent NE corner)

I have a point feature class in which each point represents the NE (Upper Left) corner of a 5' x 5' excavation unit across an archaeological site (the units are not contiguous).  I would like to generate a polygon feature of the 5' x 5' units (in other words, create the other 3 corners - LL, LR and UR and connect them with a closed line and convert to a polygon - (or directly create a polygon feature class if that's possible). Are there existing tools that I can use to do this, or a script that can be modified? I am not a programmer ;-(...I am using ArcGIS Desktop with an Advanced license.

 

Thanks so much!

 

Susan
