Dear Families:

It may seem hard to believe but the end of school is fast approaching, and we want to let you know what’s in store for our final day, August 7.

This year, graduation will be at 11:00 AM on Friday, August 7th.  We are asking for parents and friends of the Bears and Rainbow graduates to gather in the side yard at 10:45 AM so that the ceremony can start on time. Due to limited seating room in the side yard, we need to restrict our guests to friends and family of graduates only.  Please note that if your graduating child doesn’t normally attend school on Fridays, you may drop him/her off at 9:30 AM.  The Little Stars as a class will not be attending graduation, both because of space limitations and because we have found that it can be an overwhelming experience for them.

After the ceremony, we will have a short reception with refreshments in the side yard.  Graduating children will then leave with their families.

Please remember that final pick-up on Friday will be 1:00 PM.  It is very important that you pick up your child and leave by 1:00 PM so the teachers can get a jump on all the cleaning, packing, and storing that needs to be completed in each classroom with school’s end.

Please plan to take EVERYTHING home (art work, extra clothing, etc.) this week, and please check the lost and found cubby.  We will be cleaning out all cubbies completely on Friday afternoon.

Many thanks,
