Special Drive-By Celebration

May 20, 2020

For many years, Sunnyside PAT has celebrated our incoming Kindergartners with a graduation ceremony. Families look forward to this celebration. They dress up and invite extended family members. Because approximately 200 people attend the event, our affiliate was obligated to cancel PAT Graduation due to social distancing requirements. However, the staff and parents decided to plan a “Drive-Through Graduation.” This allowed families and the PAT team to model safety measures, such as covering the face with a mask and social distancing. It also provided families with the opportunity to celebrate their year with Parents as Teachers and say good-bye to the Parent Educators. The staff adorned with balloons and decorations and played music. Families honked their cars and waved as they drove past with signs and graduation attire. Families reported that they were thrilled that our organization thought to celebrate their children so they could laugh and have fun during this challenging time. Amidst the laughter, parents and staff shed a few tears as well. We truly felt that bringing our families and PAT team together for this opportunity was genuine success!
