On July 30th & August 12th respectively Storyteller celebrated our students moving on to Kindergarten this fall. The modified events were split into two separate celebrations, with graduations happening at each site.
The State Street Head Start group had their ceremony in the meeting hall of the First Congregational Church. The children sang songs, after which each child was called up to receive their certificate and an award that described their best characteristics.
At De La Vina Preschool, the ceremony was held outside in the backyard under our beautiful avocado trees. The children also sang and the teachers regaled the families of stories about each child's accomplishments during their time at Storyteller. The families were instrumental in creating decorations for the backyard event.
Backpacks with school supplies for Kindergarten were supplied by the Golden Rule Foundation, each with a notebook, pencils, sharpener, markers, glue sticks, their very own book to read, and a hand made congratulatory card made by some of the younger members of the foundation.
The families came with balloons, treats, and took many photos and videos with the teachers. We will miss them all so much!
