Dear Sixth Grade Parents,

As we approach the end of the year, we are excited to celebrate our accomplishments with you! The next few weeks will be filled with various activities, and we want to make sure that you have them all on your calendars:

  • Memorial Day – no school – Monday, May 31st
  • Maccabi Games – Tuesday, June 8th *please see below for more information*
  • Last Day: Wednesday, June 9th – early dismissal @ 12:30 p.m.
  • Graduation – Thursday, June 10th @ 10:00 a.m. – students arrive @ 9:30 a.m.

In addition to upcoming dates, we want to share some other important information with you.

  • Following the Maccabi Games on Tuesday, June 8th, the 6th grade students will remain at Wise School for the penultimate graduation rehearsal. From 12:30 – 1:00, Wise School will provide lunch for each student and they will have time to sign each other’s yearbooks.  We will rehearse from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m., please pick up your student at this time.

 

  • Due to Covid protocols, we cannot have anyone out of their seats during the graduation ceremony. Because of this, we have hired a wonderful photographer, Rachael Sterlin, who will be here to take photos during the ceremony. These will be made available to you (at no cost) after graduation.

 

  • In order to follow proper Covid protocols, as well as avoid having to stand in line and rush to save seats, each family will be assigned six seats socially distanced throughout the sanctuary. We will be doing a random lottery to determine each family’s placement. If you know that you will not need all six seats, please let us know in advance.

 

  • Please refer to the following guidelines when shopping for or assembling your child’s graduation outfit. It is important that your child is dressed appropriately and comfortably for this special occasion.

 

  • Boys…will be in pants and a collared shirt (no tie or jacket necessary, but they may feel free to wear one). Please no sports shoes – dress shoes and dress socks are preferred.
  • Girls…should wear a dress, a skirt, or nice pants. A sleeveless dress is allowed, but no spaghetti straps or strapless dresses without a sweater covering their shoulders. Girls should wear appropriate shoes, such as flats or a low heel. Hairstyle, make-up, jewelry, and accessories need to be tasteful and in moderation.

 

If you have any questions regarding the information provided in this letter, please call us. We look forward to sharing these next few weeks with you and your families.

Sincerely,

Tami Weiser and the 6th Grade Team
