Dear Parents/Guardians,

The Stepping Up Ceremony will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, June 22th.   We anticipate that the ceremony will be over by approximately 11:00 a.m.  After the ceremony, the students will go to the gym where they will line up with their class.  The students will be dismissed into the schoolyard.  I ask that you proceed to the schoolyard through the main lobby to wait for your child.  There will be staff members holding up signs with your child’s class number.  Please return the attached slip indicating whether or not you will take your child out of school immediately following the ceremony.  

Two tickets will be distributed to each child. In order to attend the ceremony, you must have your ticket with you.   Please remember that no children will be admitted into the ceremony.

DRESS CODE for GRADUATES:  White shirt and black pants for boys, girls can wear white tops and black pants or a skirt, dresses are allowed but must be an appropriate length (no long dresses allowed) and shoes cannot have heels higher than 2 inches.

I am looking forward to a wonderful ceremony honoring our fifth grade students!
