It occurred to me this week that this was the first time in three years I have not had a child graduating from high school. I’ve been pretty busy until this last school year with teaching Kindergarten full time, layered with a busy home life of my own children playing sports and performing in the Fine Arts. I was in a non-stop graduation mindset for 24 months. My daughter graduated in 2016, then Christy and I had the double whammy of her daughter and my son graduating in 2017. There was a lot of shopping for special occasion clothing, graduation events and University and Scholarship Applications.
I can put it all behind me now until University graduation. This year no one from my home is graduating. Christy has a year of reprieve until her youngest graduates two years from now so we’re taking a deep breath of relief for this spring. But we do have our Kindergarten children’s participation in the Grade 7 Promotion Ceremony to look forward to on Thursday, June 21.
So you are not rushed next week, here are our expectations for Kindergarten attire for the big event:
Girls– dress or skirt, dress shoes or sandals (no flip flops)
Boys– a button-up shirt with a collar and tie if you have these items (please do not go out and buy them) or a t-shirt/long sleeve shirt withouta large logo on the front, pants or shorts, dress shoes or cleaned up runners.
At this time, we are still trying to fix the exact time our children will be walking the Grade 7s down the aisle. We know for sure it will be in the morning, around 11:25 am. You are welcome to come and watch and shed a few years with us as we realize how quickly this magical year has gone by. We suggest you arrive for 11:15 am and wait for us in the hallway to pass you. Then follow us in. As soon as more details are shared with us, we will inform you.
