The DuVall 5th Grade Promotion Ceremony will take place on Thursday, June 11th starting at 10:00 AM. During this time, our staff will socially distance themselves 6 feet apart on the sidewalk of the school side of Francis Street. The Clap Out for 5th grade students will take place in the bus lane of the school on Francis Street. Starting at 10:00 AM, families from Ms. Ranka’s class will follow the path indicated below. Mrs. Courtright’s class will follow the same route starting at 10:30 AM.
Moving East on Beech Street, Turn Right on Edison Street. Turn Left on Cass Street. Turn Right on Francis Street. Following this path will allow all vehicles to follow the same flow of traffic. So that we are able to have an orderly flow of traffic, we are asking parents/guardians to drive their child for this event. Students and family members must stay in the vehicle at all times. We are also asking families to limit the number of vehicles involved to one per family. While approaching the school, vehicles may pull into the bus lane for the clap out and proceed slowly by the teachers. Near the end of the bus lane closest to Beech Street will be the 5th grade teachers. The 5th grade teachers will hand the family a bag containing our promotion certificate, other student awards, and a special surprise. As the family receives the bag on the passenger side window, a member from the DuVall PTA will take a picture of the moment so that pictures may be placed on the DuVall School News Blog.
I would like to thank all of the staff members for making this possible. I would also like to give a special thanks to the following parents who helped to make this event possible for our 5th graders. Mrs. Malmsten for helping to design and create a 5th grade gift bag for each student! Mrs. Bagdonas helped to create and bind the 5th grade memory books. Mrs. Makled helped to make the upcoming 5th grade promotion video. Mrs. Gross and members of the DuVall PTA helped to make these activities possible through their support!
