Kindergarten Graduation Update
Dear Kinder Parents:
We hope this note finds you well. We wanted to share the latest information with you regarding the Kinder Graduation Ceremony scheduled on Saturday, May 30, from 9:30-10:30 a.m.
Due to COVID-19, health and safety of everyone is our top priority. Additionally, with the social distancing mandates in place, we are unable to have a traditional graduation. Yet, we want to acknowledge our wonderful Kinders for their hard work to prepare for 1st Grade! Therefore, the Ceremony will be a drive-thru event (meaning that all scholars will remain in their cars) and the staff will bring their Graduation acknowledgments to them.
Dean Jones will coordinate parking to ensure that cars are in formation before the scholars are driven through the parking lot area set up for graduation. We ask that you have your children at the school on time, and we are looking forward to seeing them at their Kinder Graduation Ceremony on Saturday, May 30.
