Grade Level Ceremony Certificates

Good Morning-

Certificate Ceremonies are one way we celebrate our student’s academic and ROAR success.

We are calendaring end of year certificate ceremonies. Please invite families to attend. They will be held in the cafeteria. Can you please have the kids perform? One song is fine J They can perform this song at our end of year talent show as well J

I will give you the promotion sashes to put on the kids as they enter, they can be in free dress. Last year we had the kids create their college/career 8x10 poster/picture so they have it to march in with. Please do this again J I will have white construction paper for you J

I will make:

1. End of Year Completion (Promotion Certificate)
