Suder Montessori believes it is important to recognize the achievements of our students in heartfelt, meaningful ways. We do this by hosting step up ceremonies for students who will be transitioning to different grade-bands, for example, from EC to E1. Because of the unique nature of this school year, we will be offering a different variation of our step up ceremonies, but it will be just as fun and exciting as it has been for students in the past.
We would like to cordially invite all Kindergarten, third, and fifth grade students to the Suder Step Up Ceremony for their respective grades. During this event, we’d like to provide students time to see one another and their teachers in-person, celebrate the year, be welcomed by teachers and students in the grade-bands they are transitioning to and other fun activities. Due to Covid restrictions, this will be a student-only event. We are exploring the option of streaming the event so that students who cannot attend will be able to virtually observe and participate in the event.
Please know that the event will take place outside in the Suder Peace Garden, on the Suder Playground and possibly in the Suder Parking Lot to ensure that we maintain proper social distancing.
