Dear St. Walter family,
Thank you to all our families who have been coming in this week for our Student Pick-up/Drop-off. Things have gone very smoothly and we appreciate your cooperation. It is so great to see our school parents and students, even if it is just for a few moments.
This coming Friday, our graduates will have a special Virtual Ribbon Ceremony on what would have been their graduation day. During the virtual ceremony, we will share the meaning and importance of ribbons, Fr. Jim will bless the ribbons and then we will ask the parents to ceremoniously pin their SWS ribbon on their graduate. The graduates will then enjoy a virtual pizza party (Thank You Beggar’s Pizza!).
On Saturday, June 13, our graduates will participate in a Drive-In Graduation Ceremony where they will receive their diplomas and awards. Details have been forwarded via email to all eighth grade parents.
In a letter that I wrote and passed along to the Class of 2020, I shared with them the following sentiments –
You are living through a historic time in our world. One day you will tell stories to your children and grandchildren of how you were not able to take part in all the traditional graduation ceremonies when you were in eighth grade…so while the disappointment of what is or is not going on right now may make you feel sad, know that what lies ahead is bright and hope-filled. We celebrate you, the Class of 2020, for all your present accomplishments and dream of the day when your future accomplishments in this world give us pause to proudly say – that is a St. Walter School alumni.
Congratulations Wildcats…continue to make us proud!
Mrs. Sharon OToole, Principal
