KINDERGARTEN CLOSEOUT EVENTS

 

Dear Kindergarten Parents,

We appreciate your patience as we continue to work toward resolving all matters to end our school year strong, in spite of turbulent times.  We have great news about your Kindergarten graduation that we are excited to announce!  Kindergarten will STILL celebrate their milestone as scheduled, but we have adjusted the original format of the program into a two part "DRIVE BY DIPLOMA" celebration!

 

PART I - The CAP and GOWN CARAVAN

On this day, (tentatively Tuesday, May 26, 2020) our Kindergarten Team (Tutor Jones, Tutor Moss, and Mrs. Younger) will travel to greet students at their front door!  YES, our amazingly gracious team will be coming to YOUR neck of the woods, to personally greet your scholar and drop off their cap and gown!  This is our way of showing our appreciation for you and the love our team has for your child.  Packages will be safely wrapped, protected, and dropped off at a safe distance.  Parents will be notified of the approximate time the caravan will arrive in front of their homes, so students can scream hello from their front door!  Please stay tuned for more details on what you can expect from our Cap and Gown Caravan!

PART II - PROMOTION PARADE at WCA

On the day of our originally scheduled Kindergarten graduation ceremony, Thursday, May 28, 2020 at 10 am - WCA is excited to welcome you to drive by our newly introduced Trunk Stop, PARADE STYLE!!!!  This will allow our scholars, donned in CAP and GOWN, to safely, slowly, and ceremoniously ride in their cars with their parents/family as we greet, wave, and place their Kindergarten diploma and memory book right in your trunk!  Parents are encouraged to take a few spins through our parking lot parade, to ensure the scholars are able to see their fellow graduates!  It is important that ALL social distancing guidelines are strictly adhered to and no-one leaves their vehicle.  However, students are encouraged to greet our team, and each other, with all the smiles and waves they can muster!  

 

We look forward to celebrating our scholars with our DRIVE BY DIPLOMA celebration.  More details on time and instructions to ensure the safety of all is forthcoming. 

Best,

The WCA Kindergarten Team

 

6TH GRADE CLOSEOUT EVENTS

Dear Sixth Graders and Parents,

We appreciate your patience as we continue to work toward resolving all matters to end our school year strong, in spite of turbulent times.  We have great news about your 6th Grade graduation that we are excited to announce.

YES! 6th Grade will STILL celebrate their milestone as scheduled, but we have adjusted the original format of the program into a two part celebration!

 

PART I - A PARKING LOT PROCESSIONAL

On this day, (tentatively Friday, May 22, 2020 at 5:00 pm) All 6th graders are invited to the Academy to greet one another for the last time this year and pick up their cap and gown. WCA is excited to welcome you to do this by driving by our newly introduced Trunk Stop, PARADE STYLE!!!!  This will allow our scholars to safely, slowly, and ceremoniously ride in their cars with their parents/family as we greet, wave, and place their cap and gown and graduation gift right in your trunk!  This opportunity is limited to one car per graduate. Parents are encouraged to take a few spins through our parking lot parade, to ensure the scholars are able to see their fellow graduates!  It is important that ALL social distancing guidelines are strictly adhered to and no one leaves their vehicle.  However, students are encouraged to greet our team, and each other, with all the smiles and waves they can muster!  Let's make this a festive and fun first step in their graduation process. Feel free to decorate your vehicles or feature your student's name on a poster in the window...be creative!

PART II - (VIRTUAL) GRADUATION!

On the day of our originally scheduled graduation ceremony, Wednesday, May 27, 2020 at 9:30 am - WCA welcomes you to join us for a virtual graduation ceremony via Zoom. Students are encouraged to log in wearing their cap and gown, and take a short processional walk together before taking their seat at the computer/device (if your space allows). The full ceremony will continue, virtually, to include our student speakers and guest speaker. An unlimited number of guests are invited to join in this ceremonious portion of our celebration! Zoom information will be shared closer to the date. We look forward to celebrating our scholars.

A 6th Grade COMMENCEMENT VIDEO CHALLENGE

Last but not least, our 6th Grade Team is finalizing plans for scholars to participate in a video challenge, that will be a collaborative effort put together and finalized by the Academy. This video will be similar to the recent wave of social media challenges and fun dance routines. Specific instructions on what your video should entail are forthcoming. Of course, social media is NOT required!  Look for more details on how to participate in the 6th grade commencement video challenge, coming soon!

 

We look forward to celebrating our scholars with our two-part celebration.  For those returning to WCA, we will do our best to make up for missing River Valley Ranch by making our annual trip to RVR as Upper School students as early as possible in the school year! More details on finalized times and instructions for all of the above to ensure the safety of all are forthcoming. 

Best,

The WCA Grammar Team
