PS and the Leavers’ March

Primary Teachers: A Middle School student will come by your classroom around 9:15 to give you a 5-minute warning that the Leaver’s March is going to begin.

Please have your students come out into the hallway and line the hallways. (Organize where you will stand ahead of time so that there is an even distribution in the hallways.) Leave room for the G12 students to walk through.

G12 students will walk from the PAC, past the LS room, past the G5s, G4s, down the EY hallway, turn into the G1 and 2 hallway and then out to the Spider Web. 

The PS students will clap as the G12 Leavers pass by.
