6th Grade Promotion Information

6th graders will gather as a grade at Hillside's flagpole area on Thursday, May 27, for the 6th Grade Promotion ceremony. This year, the ceremony will also be live-streamed on Hillside's Facebook page so Hillside families and friends who do not wish to attend the outdoor ceremony can watch. The ceremony will occur from 9:45-10:30 a.m. in a coned-off area around the flagpole. From 10:30 a.m. until 11:00 a.m., students will remain outside and will be able to sign autograph books for each other.


At 11:00 a.m., students will return to their classroom to put away autograph books and get ready for a pizza lunch, to be held in the same flagpole area (which will continue to be blocked off for safety). Lunch will be served from 11:15 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. Parents are also invited to join students on the blacktop at Hillside for some music and fun outdoors after students eat (masks will be required) from 11:45-12:15. Parents may join us outside for any or all of the promotion day activities


Students will return to their classroom at 12:15 p.m. to get ready to depart Hillside. Dismissal is at 1:00 p.m.


Weather Plan:

If we will be experiencing weather that will keep us indoors, the promotion ceremony will take place in the North Gym and will be live-streamed to parents on Hillside's Facebook page. Parents will not be able to attend the indoor ceremony because of the need to adhere to our district COVID protocols. The pizza lunch will then be served indoors, as well (North Gym), and there will be music provided to students after that for some socializing and dancing, if desired.


We are hopeful the weather will cooperate so that parents may be involved in this special day, if they wish. We will provide a live-stream if the weather does not cooperate!

Weather Communication

The communication to parents regarding inclement weather on Promotion Day will occur by 8:30 a.m. If we need to move everything indoors, families will know by 8:30 a.m.
