My Project

My grade 4 scholars have been through so much with the multitude of academic interruptions in their learning due to COVID-19, but they pushed through.

Help me help reward them for all of their hard work and efforts by being able to make their departure from our school in June memorable!

I want them to know that their hard work paid off and that I and many others are proud of each of them for being able to help create a fun party-like atmosphere through the gift of graduation caps and tassels.

I also want to be able to make this moment special in their families' lives and be able to create lasting memories with the caps and tassels while they stand in front of the graduation background with their families for photo opportunities. I can already see the smiles!

My students are an amazing group of boys and girls who I would like to give motivational items to carry through with them to their next schools so they will always know that I am PROUD of them!
