Hello 8th grade families! I hope you receive this message in good health and spirits for you and your families. I would like to share the following information with our 8th grade families about this year's end of the year promotion:
- We are creating a pre-recorded video to memorialize this historic event
- We will post the video online for you and your students to see on June 12 at 5pm at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCL_Ugop4NkCwPoPsHrO-flg
- We have created a printable promotion program: 2020 Bernal Promotion Program for you to print as a memorial keepsake. We will have copies of the program available for 8th grade students during this week's student item drop-off and pick-up schedule
- On June 12th, Bernal's Leadership teachers and students will have created a backdrop for optional promotion photo opportunities for you and your students, should you choose to, and are available to participate:
- This backdrop for photo opportunities will be in front of the school along the fence until you reach the crosswalk. We will have “photo” stops where students can pose and get pictures at Bernal. We ask that you take your pictures and move swiftly to another spot or leave the location (social distance reasons). The idea is to get quick pictures at Bernal for your memories and then move on. The photo spots will be set up by the leadership students on Friday June 12. Please come by after 1 pm.
We have no words to express how sorry we are for our 8th grade students. They have worked so hard to get to this point in their academic career and they will not have the chance to experience a traditional in-person celebration of this milestone. Nevertheless, we are extremely proud of them and will continue to support them and wish them will as they move onto the next phase of their academic journey. Be safe and take care of yourselves and each other.
