6th Grade "Virtual" Promotion Activities

Aloha Promotion Image

Hello 6th Grade Parents:

This year has been challenging with distance learning and the 6th grade class unable to enjoy their final year at Silver Oak, a place most have called home for seven years. Although we may not be able to have our traditional 6th grade celebrations of a pool party, dance, and field trip to Great America, we are looking forward to sending our 6th graders off with a Promotion Celebration to remember on Thursday, June 10, 2021. Please continue to watch your email and check back here as we will share details of our promotion ceremony shortly.

Photos for Slideshow

The Sixth Grade Promotion Slideshow is a Silver Oak tradition that all parents and students look forward to. It’s a 7-year stroll down memory lane shown during the beginning of the Promotion Ceremony. What makes this possible are your photos - we need your help to collect pictures! See below for details.

6th Grade Class Gift Donation

One tradition we are proud to continue is the Class Gift to Silver Oak. This year, the class of 2021 will be working with the local muralist, Lila Gemello, to install a mural on the ball wall to brighten the playground.

Lila will meet with each 6th grade class via Zoom to talk about the process. She will then ask students to create and submit art that reminds them of and represents Silver Oak and our neighborhood.

Lila grew up in Evergreen and attended Silver Creek High School, her father, George Gemello, is a math teacher at Chaboya. Lila has completed a number of murals at various Evergreen schools, including but not limited to Chaboya, Montgomery and Laurelwood. To see more of Lila's work, please visit her website.

Class Tile

The 6th grade class will leave behind a signed class tile to be mounted at school. Your child's teacher will coordinate with him/her to get a signature.

Commemorative Class Gift

Each student will receive a yard sign, and promotion goodie bag which will include a throw blanket and other items.

Fundraising Efforts

Our committee has arranged the following activities for you to enjoy and support our efforts at the same time!

The 6th Grade Promotions Committee appreciates your support!

Slideshow Photo Upload Instructions

Dear Sixth Grade Parents,

What we need from you

  • 2 pictures of your child: one from kindergarten (or as close as possible) and one recently from 6th grade. This could be the Lifetouch school picture.
  • Group pictures (optional): These should include a minimum of 3 kids at Silver Oak activities over the years (school clubs, events, field trips). We’ll use a selection of the submissions as time permits in the slideshow.

Submission Instructions and Deadline

  • Please email your pictures to silveroak6thgraders@gmail.com:
    • 1 Kindergarten Picture
    • 1 Current Picture
    • Any Optional Group Pictures
  • Include your child's first name, last name, and your name. If we have questions we will email you
  • Higher resolution photos are best (we can resize them as necessary)
  • Once we receive and process your pictures, we will email you to confirm receipt
  • Please email all pictures by Wednesday, March 31, 2021

Here’s the slideshow that we put together two years ago -
