NEW HAVEN – New Haven Elementary School kindergartners served as special guests during the commitment ceremony of the letters Q and U.
Officiated by Principal Jennifer Granholm, a Q and a U played by representatives from each of the kindergarten classrooms, became forever united as they pledged their teamwork and lives together in order to create words.
Without that union, Granholm said, words such as quack, quiet and quintessential would forever be incomplete.
Kindergarteners dressed to impress at the formal affair, where the letters of honor were given in phonics matrimony by the kindergarten teachers.
Q and U vowed to have and hold each other for spelling and reading and to help people win Scrabble.
Upon being presented by Granholm as Mr. and Mrs. “Qua,” the youngsters celebrated with cheers, applause and Ring-pops.
The special ceremony coincided with the kindergarten English language arts skills learned in the classroom.
Q and U are stuck like glue is a saying the New Haven students will remember.
Aurora Pultorak, who represented the letter Q and wore a bridal outfit, veil and held flowers, said she was excited to learn new words, such as queen and quilt.
Following the event, students and staff members celebrated the wedding by attending a reception, complete with cake and dancing.
