We made many special memories throughout this year and capped them with some special events.
Congratulations to Our MUPs!
The Moving Up Ceremony was on June 2nd. We are so proud of the children who completed the Primary Program! We had the MUP picnic on May 14th, the field trip to Pottsgrove Manor on May 21st, and of course, the Moving Up Ceremony itself with family in attendance.
Thank you to Ms. Phelen, Ms. Tjokro, Mr. J, and Mrs. Forshaw for preparing these capable, caring, and courageous learners for the next stage of their learning careers. And thank you to the parents and grandparents who have been such wonderful, loving support throughout this year and all the years. You have much to be proud of!
The Moving Up Celebration was not without heartfelt tears as we celebrated the accomplishments of the children. The affection for each child and family is deep-rooted at VFKH. The teachers provided a speech about the children and then each child crossed the bridge, symbolically leaving primary on one side and entering elementary on the other. Cupcakes, balloons, and a special gift finished off the evening. Once again, congratulations to our MUPs!
Elementary Dance Party!
Thank you to all the families for supporting the Elementary Dance Party! The children played a large role in planning and decorating for the event! They envisioned neon and disco lights and boy did we have neon and disco lights! The children also compiled song suggestions for the playlist and built an incredibly fun selection of music! They also made creations out of glow sticks, like flowers, dancing men and balls.
And they jumped in for action songs like ‘YMCA’. Thank you to Mrs. Greenland for the delicious punch to accompany the food and your artistic eye to help bring the aesthetic together. Also, a thank you to Mrs. Forshaw and Ms. Tjokro for their time and support for this event. We would also like to thank Elliot, Lilliana, Audrey, and Benjamin for contributing their disco balls to the event and making it shine even brighter!
