Community Celebration


    What is Community Celebration?

    Community Celebration is held a couple of times each month on full-day Wednesdays.  During this time an individual or groups of students share songs and talents to the entire Loring Community.  Students who exhibit our Core Values are also recognized.  

    What time does Community Celebration start and how long does it last?

    It begins at 2:40 and usually lasts between 20 and 30 minutes.

    Will I be alerted if my child is performing?

    You may receive some type of notification from your child's teacher if either they or the whole class are performing.

    Can I dismiss my child from Community Celebration?

    Yes, however it is especially important on Community Celebration days that you notify the school by sending in a note in your child's folder, or if that isn't possible, please call the school early in the day.  This ensures that both the office and your child's teacher have ample time to get the details of any changes.  Last-minute dismissals create logistical issues when it comes to making sure that all students are accounted for, which can result in delays in buses being released.

    Where do I park for Community Celebration?

    Parking can be at a premium during high-attendance Community Celebrations. Students head back to their classrooms after Community Celebration to gather their belongings and to be dismissed.  Unless you are dismissing by car pickup and are sure you will be returning to your care immediately following Community Celebration, you should not park in the car pickup area along the curb by the gym and library doors.  Parked cars in the pickup line create delays in pick-ups and potentially dangerous situations involving cars actively picking up having to go around those that are parked.  If the lot is full, you can park along Alta Drive and walk a short distance to the school.
