END OF THE YEAR CEREMONIES AND EVENTS
I wanted to send an update on our ceremonies and end of the year events. All students who are in our Driftless Virtual School this year are invited to participate in 8th grade promotion and of course in our high school graduation. We look forward to seeing everyone and celebrating the accomplishments of our students.
END OF THE YEAR CEREMONIES AND ACTIVITIES
Scholarship Ceremony and NHS Wednesday, May 26th @ 7:00 p.m.
Our scholarship ceremony will be held on Wednesday, May 26th at 7:00 p.m. in the large gym. Every senior is allowed to bring 4 guests to the event and each student's party will be seated together in the gymnasium. Everyone is required to wear masks and stay physically distanced. We look forward to handing out numerous scholarships to our graduates to give them a good start on their future plans.
Senior Breakfast Thursday, May 27th @ 7:30
All seniors are invited to attend a breakfast to kickstart their last full day of school.
High School Graduation Practice and Senior Salute May 28th @ 9:00 a.m.
On Friday, May 28th at 9:00 a.m. we will have our graduation practice for all seniors. All seniors should bring their cap and gown for the senior salute parade that will happen in the front of the building at 10:00 a.m. following graduation practice.
High School Graduation Saturday, May 29th @ 10:00
The plan for high school graduation will be an outdoor ceremony with each graduating senior being allowed to bring 8 guests to graduation. Each senior student will be given a ticket and those tickets are required in order to be admitted to our graduation ceremony. Each member of the student's party will be seated in the same area. The graduates will be seated with their families and will come to the stage for their honors plaques and/or diplomas. One member of the graduate's party will walk on stage with the graduate and will be the one that turns the graduate's tassel, officially signifying that they have graduated. It would be appreciated if the friend or family member would then walk off the stage so pictures can be taken of just the graduate. Please wear a mask into and on your way out of the ceremony. Masks may be removed when you are sitting with your group of 8 if everyone in the group is comfortable with that.
If there is bad weather in the forecast we will move the ceremony inside to the high school gymnasium and 4 people would be allowed to attend for each student. We look forward to a wonderful ceremony and we are excited for our graduating seniors and the great things on the horizon for them in their futures. If we make the decision to move the ceremony inside we will try and send out a thrillshare and post it on our website on Friday, May 28th in the morning.
8th Grade Promotion Wednesday, June 2nd @ 10:00 a.m.
Our 8th grade promotion ceremony will be held on Wednesday, June 2nd at 10:00 a.m. We will have a short ceremony on that day and promote our 8th grade students to high school. Each student will be allowed to have 4 people in attendance for this ceremony. Masks will be required at the ceremony. Driftless Virtual Academy students are encouraged to attend the ceremony as well so we can acknowledge their movement from middle to high school.
