Save the Date! Commencement & Moving Up Ceremonies
We are pleased to share that The Bush School is planning to hold in-person events this June to celebrate our students completing their time in each division. If conditions allow, we will host in-person the Class of 2021 Commencement as well as the Fifth and Eighth Grade Moving Up Ceremonies. Listed below are the dates, times, and locations for these events. More specific event information will be forthcoming.
Class of 2021 Commencement Sunday, June 13
Location: T-Mobile Park, 1250 First Avenue South, Seattle, WA 98134
Attendance: Members of Bush Class of 2021 / TBD: limited number of family members (see below)
This year the ceremony will include the Eighth Grade students only. Sixth and Seventh Grade students will have a separate opportunity this spring to recognize their moving up to the next grade level in Middle School.
Class of 2028 Moving Up Ceremony Tuesday, June 8
Location: The Bush School, Magusin Gymnasium
Attendance: Members of Bush Class of 2028 / TBD: limited number of family members (see below)
In hosting these special events, the school will follow current health and safety protocols (e.g. physically-distanced seating, facial coverings, health screenings, etc.) as well as state and local guidelines for large gatherings. We will send out additional information about the possibility of families attending as the dates approach. Unlike previous ceremonies, out of public health concerns, we will limit the number of people from each student's household(s) who can attend in person. At this point, we cannot guarantee that family members from outside of the student's household(s) will be able to attend. We anticipate more flexibility in the larger outdoor venue (T-Mobile Park) for Commencement than for the indoor venue (Magusin Gymnasium) on campus.
