It’s been a Connect Charter School tradition to send the grade 9s off to high school with a stage walk, where each student is presented with a little bag with some symbolic items as well as a commemorative t-shirt designed by grade 9 students.
We were unable to hold the stage walk this year due to COVID-19; however the grade 9 teaching team arranged a drive-through celebration on Wednesday.
A severe thunderstorm watch and ominous clouds resulted in a warning email to parents that event might be postponed – but right on cue, the clouds parted and sun came out 15 minutes before the start of the celebration, and the rain held off until 15 minutes after the last vehicle came through.
Of 103 students in grade 9, 100 participated in the drive by celebration.
Good luck to the Connect Charter School Grade 9 2020 class – enjoy this video tribute to them.
