Monday, April 27 was an exciting day for Waterside School, as the graduating fifth graders revealed the schools they will be attending next year. Inspired by National College Signing Day, which is the first day a high school senior can sign a letter of intent with a college, "Reveal Day" gives the students an opportunity to share their schools with each other for the first time. This year, all fourteen fifth graders earned admission to competitive independent schools with generous scholarships.
While students traditionally share this exciting news at morning assembly in front of the school community, the class of 2020 participated in a virtual "Reveal Day" over Zoom. As the students proudly announced their great news, they donned hats and other apparel from their schools of choice. Their pride and sense of accomplishment was impossible to miss. It was a beautiful celebration of the students and their families and their unwavering commitment to learning.
Mr. Duennebier, Waterside's music teacher, put together a video tribute that captures this joyous and momentous occasion:
