Celebrate With Us to Honor Our Yorktown Students’ Accomplishments
Graduation is a golden milestone in education and honoring the students who have reached this pinnacle is a true celebration of success.
As Memorial Day came and went this year, it gave us pause to appreciate more than ever how freedom, progress, opportunity, and safety are a gift made possible by the sacrifices of so many others. In celebration of these gifts, we also celebrate the opportunities we have to give our children the encouragement to progress and prosper through quality education.
Although we were tested by the ‘shelter in place’ priorities necessary due to COVID-19, Yorktown Education students soldiered on with their studies via remote learning. Yorktown has always provided remote online learning to our students, so there were really no major hurdles to face. Students were able to stay on task, work at home, and pursue their studies without missing a beat.
Now we’re preparing to honor our Yorktown graduates this month with the Annual Formal Dinner, Monday, June 29, 2020. The graduation ceremony will also be streamed live for those who are unable to attend in person.
Dinner and speeches will follow the ceremony, along with students’ school traditions. For families who wish to only attend the graduation ceremony, they will be able to watch the remainder of the program via remote live streaming. Details of the Graduation Ceremony and Dinner will be included in your invitation.
We’re so proud of our students for staying vigilant in their studies while coping with the uncertainties and stress brought about by the global pandemic. And we also appreciate the ongoing support of all the parents, caregivers, teachers, and administrators who have diligently kept pace with moving our students forward to this momentous graduation day.
Yorktown Education is a special place on many levels, but there is no denying that without the conviction of parents and others who recognize the intrinsic value of Yorktown, we would not be able to make the strides we do.
And as we move forward into summer, with exciting Summer School programs and plans for major curriculum reviews and development in the fall, we fully realize that the community’s common denominator continues to be those who know and trust Yorktown Education. Quality education is our heartfelt goal and the proof is in the young men and women you will see walk across the stage to receive their diploma at the graduation ceremony.
We sincerely hope to see you there if you are able to attend, but if not, please know that being there in thought and spirit is just as meaningful.
Thank you, one and all!
