Grades 1, 2, & 3: No forms or writing assignments this week. Keep reading. See you when school resumes. Most everyone did some type of work. I’m so very proud of all of my students!

Soon, I’ll have some optional videos to encourage student reading. (No response or writing will be necessary.) Here are some notes about the graduation ceremony for our students who are graduating. We are so proud of our DuVall fifth graders who are moving on to middle school!

Parents: please fill in this parent survey if you get a chance: https://forms.gle/DNx3eN8hcRpXsfSs5 .

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.
