🚘🎓 Drive Up Promotion Ceremony
- 🚘🎓 Drive Up Promotion Ceremony
On Tuesday, June 16th, students and parents will be invited to come to Joyce Kilmer in full cap and gown in order to receive their promotion certificates and any awards they have recieved. There will be 3 different time frames for the drive up portion of the ceremony to choose from; 10 am - 12 pm, 1 pm - 3pm, and 4 pm - 6pm. It is our hope to roughly have 30 families per time slot. Milltown Police will be assisting as we ask that you arrive no earlier than 5 minutes before your scheduled time frame only utilizing 1 car with 4 guests plus the graduate.
Cars will be staged in the Joyce Kilmer parking lot, and assistants/chaperones, and/or police will guide your cars on to West Church where you will pull up and stop in order to exit the car and proceed towards the school and the entrance of the gymnasium. The red carpet will be out, so there will be no confusion as to where to go.
Students will be greeted at a safe distance by myself, Mrs. Citro, and Dr. Brown as Ms.Metz will read each graduate's name over the outdoor PA system. Graduates will receive their diplomas and awards in a contactless manner as all items will be organized and set out based off of sign up times.
The Joyce Kilmer "step and repeat" banner (a background for pictures used at events and at banquet) will be available for a photo opportunity adjacent to where the students will receive their items. We do kindly ask that you strategize the best way to efficiently take your pictures (who is going first, second, and with what family member) as we will need to gently move everyone along in a very timely manner in order to get through 30 families per time frame and 90 families in total.
In conjunction with best practice and the MPD we ask that everyone wear masks during the event and please remain at a safe social distance. We also ask that you do not congregate after taking photos and kindly move along as quickly as possible. Information on sign ups for specific time frames for the promotion ceremony will be shared soon.
