Dear Parents, Students, Faculty and Friends,
Congratulations to the Class of 2020!
On Thursday, May 29, SCIS celebrated the graduation of sixteen outstanding young adults in our Graduation Ceremony. We were joined by 100s of visitors on Zoom from all over the world. In case you missed the event, the entire ceremony will be posted on our Portal. As of this writing, we can share photos of the event and a link to the placeholder for the video.
Like many events this year, it was quite unique but no less meaningful and important. To our graduates, we once again say “Congratulations. Go be you and do great things!” I want to share a special congratulations to all the parents of our graduates. In many ways, you too have graduated ! And I would be remiss if I did not share a special congratulations to SCIS staff members Barry and Tiffany Johnson as their eldest daughter graduated. Barry, as our tech coordinator, played an even more important role in streaming the ceremony to so many around the world to share what is truly a “celebration for our entire community.”
The ceremony was filled with some very memorable student speeches, student awards, and a Faculty Address to the graduates made by Ms. Whiteside. After the ceremony, the Graduates paraded through the school past rows of faculty and students cheering their congratulations before ending up on the field for the traditional tossing of the graduation caps.
We cap off the graduation week with our Senior Dinner tonight with families and friends. A special thanks go out to Sandra Machan for organizing the event in what I know will be another great community experience.
On another note, I encourage everyone to share thoughts from your family on the year with the rest of the SCIS community via the SCIS End of Year Community Video. It’s a great way to build connection. See the flier below for more details.
On the horizon, we look forward to welcoming back our youngest SCIS Dragons in the near future!
- Grades 1-3: June 2
- KG: June 3
- N-PK: June 8
Wishing each of you a safe and relaxing weekend,
Head of School
