8th Grade Moving Up Day Update


Changes to Moving Up Day.

 I realized the other day that many of your children may need their Chromebooks to view the Moving Up Day ceremony and if they pass them in by the 11th, they won't be able to do that. So I've made a change of plans. Here they are:

Moving Up Day Reverse Parade (with Jordan's Ice Cream) will be on Monday, June 8 from 4:00-5:00
Remote Broadcast of the Moving Up Day Ceremony will be Monday, June 8 at 7:00pm (live)
If your child needs their Chromebook to view the broadcast then do not return the Chromebook until Tuesday-Thursday of that week.

Previous Message from Mr. Sawyer on Friday, May 8: 

Good afternoon. Here are my tentative plans for Moving Up Day. Who knows, maybe we will be able to do more than this? We’ll keep our fingers crossed that we will be able to, safely, relax restrictions by early June. But for now here’s what I have planned:

June 11 from 4:00-5:00 - We’ll hold a “reverse parade” where you can drive your child through the drop off and bus loop to wave hello/goodbye to teachers who will be standing, safely, 6 feet away from one another.

We will also have FREE ice cream from Jordan’s Ice Cream in Belmont for each student and one other passenger in the car that we will deliver to your car! Hopefully, I will also have a free yearbook for each student at this time. Again, fingers crossed….

Beginning at 7:00 that evening, Mr. Walsh and I will have a live broadcast of the “moving up” ceremony. We’ll have a couple of speeches by teachers either live with us or pre-recorded. We announce the names of each of our 8th graders and finish the broadcast with the annual highlight of the Moving Up Day ceremony with the slide show that students in Mrs. Damato’s classes have been working on in the computer UA class.

Obviously not a typical year-end event but this is not your typical year. But I still think that it will be an enjoyable afternoon and evening for our 8th graders and one that they will remember.

Thank you and take care.
