Moving On Assembly

Today was such a special day for 2nd graders at College Square.
Because this cohort of children had no Kindergarten celebration and every school year was truly abnormal, today we celebrated their time at College Square and bid farewell to them as they move on to their next adventure at Dutch Ridge.
This assembly was a labor of love and came together beautifully because of all the parent volunteers, the staff, administration, custodians, and community partners. And the students!!! They worked so so so hard on their song and readings. They deserve all the kudos today!
There are so many thank you’s for todays success…
Huge thank you to Pizza Joe’s for the pre-assembly pizza party.
And thank you to the community partners who donated to our kids amazing swag bags: Crave, Pizza Joes, Castle Toys, Wendy’s, Frontier Falls, Beavtown, Spokane orthodontics, C&S sports.
Parents. You are amazing. So many of you showed up to stuff the swags, to hand out pizza, to decorate, to practice with our kids, all the things. You were the magic behind this event. And huge thank you to the Rush Family for the amazing memories video. It was so special.
The year couldn’t have ended better for these precious ones. We hope you all loved the assembly and the kids loved their swag bags. We wish so much luck and love to our 2nd graders moving on to Dutch Ridge.
