VMS Graduates

Graduation Approaches!
VMS 8th Graders, parents and staff are preparing for the culmination of their journey at VMS. Last week, Gretchen and the Middle School teachers teamed up and hit the road surprising all 27 graduates at their homes with a congratulations yard sign! Here’s a first look at these students!

While graduation will be a bit different this year, our hope is to provide a fun-filled day to celebrate this milestone! Below is a timeline of the events for June 9th – Graduation Day!
12pm  Zoom Lunch for all 8th grade students and teachers
We will be providing lunch for everyone to enjoy “together” from their own homes! Students will select their order ahead of time and it will be delivered prior to the lunch date.
5pm  Graduation Parade!
The graduates will be in the center area of the VMS parking lot, at a safe social distance from each other, and the parade will rotate around them. All VMS families are invited to participate in the parade by driving through our parking lot via a designated route to congratulate our 8th grade students. Music will be playing, horns will be honking, and signs will be waved to celebrate these 27 graduates!
5:45-6:15pm  Announce each graduate and pass out diplomas
8:30-10:30pm Drive-In Graduation Movie (8th Grade families only)
VMS has rented a huge movie screen to watch the graduation video, speeches and all, for 8th grade families ONLY! This is our opportunity to bring this graduating group together to celebrate in the safest way possible. Each graduate will be in their car with their family so all families can watch graduation together, Drive-In movie-style.
9pm  A link to The Graduation Video will be sent to the entire VMS community!
Cheers to celebrating the VMS Class of 2020!
