Parents and Guardians,

We hope this letter finds you healthy and safe. As we approach the last days of the school year, I would like to update you on the final plans for the Graduation Class of 2020.

We have created a virtual video of the class of 2020 that honors and celebrates them in a special way. This is the first graduating class in our history to have a virtual video created especially for them. It is something they can view and cherish over the years. Their virtual video includes the pictures and names of all the 8th graders, speeches from administrators, deans and school counselors and pictures of the various activities that happened during the school year. The video also includes the 2020 graduation award winners. This video will be posted on You Tube on Friday morning for a showing at 11am.

Your child should check their google classroom accounts or the link on the IS 5 website Friday morning to access the video.

Also, this Friday, June 26, we will be posting a graduation brochure on google classroom as well as the I.S 5 website. This brochure will look like the graduation brochure we give out every year at Queens College. It will include all the names of the graduates, award winners and congratulatory notes from teachers.

In addition, there is one community celebrations left:

June 25 3 to 4pm. Leaders

Scholars, Experts and Innovators celebrations were an amazing success.

Teachers and Administrators have participated in this platform as it gave them an opportunity to wish students well. The details of how to log on to this platform have been sent to the student’s google classroom account.

Caps and Gowns have been delivered to the school. We are waiting for the yearbooks to arrive and then we will ship everything to the student’s home address. We expect to ship all graduation items to our students the first week of July.

Thank you for your patience. We hope your child enjoys what we have planned for them as we celebrate their time at I.S. 5.

If I can be of any further assistance, please let me know.

William Morgan
