    Step-Up Ceremony

    Step-Up is an important annual Redwood Day community event during which we celebrate our students moving from one grade to the next. This year's event will take place virtually with staggered start/end times for grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-8. Each program lasts for 20-30 minutes. This event is a moving celebration of our students’ growth this year, the end of classes, and the excitement and learning that await them in the fall. What to expect (if this is your first Step-Up): After opening remarks from our Head of School, chorus will perform. Then each grade level will be acknowledged. Student representatives from the grade above will share highlights and wisdom from that particular grade level/year with the younger grade (First will speak to Kindergarten, Second will speak to First, and so on). Teachers will speak to current students and at the close of these speeches, the grade will “Step-Up” to the next grade. Eighth-graders will also participate in Step-Up, in addition to celebrating their graduation on Friday, June 12. Please contact Denise Breland with questions.
