Stepping Stones Ceremony
At SCS each year, we celebrate the completion of the elementary grades with a “Stepping Stones Ceremony.” For new families, the Stepping Stones Ceremony is a tradition where the teacher speaks about the class and the students, then each student receives a stone with their grade to signify completing the year. It is a wonderful closure and the stones become keepsakes that they collect every year.
Our Stepping Stones Ceremony, which includes the kindergarten graduation and 5th grade promotion, will take place on the last day of school and families are invited to attend. Students should arrive at school at the normal time (8:00 am), with morning car line running as usual and remain with their class until their ceremony. Students may wear uniform or nicer on this day. Once the whole class has received their stones, they will exit as a group into the school gym where you can meet up with them and take pictures. If you are picking up your child at this time, please check out with their teacher.
See the schedule below for each grades ceremony:
- 8:30-8:45 – First Grade
- 8:45-9:00 – Second Grade
- 9:00-9:15 – Third Grade
- 9:15-9:30 – Fourth Grade
- 9:30-9:45 – Transition to Kindergarten Graduation
- 9:45-10:15 – Kindergarten Graduation
- 10:15-10:30 – Transition to Fifth Grade Promotion
- 10:30-11:00 – Fifth Grade Promotion
- 11:00-11:30 – Wrap Up and Dismissal
Parents may either pick up their student directly following their Stepping Stones Ceremony or pick up through afternoon car line. If picking up after the ceremony, please check out your student with their teacher in the gym. If picking up through car line, note that car line will begin at 11:15 and will run as normal.
