OSWEGO, NY – Well, it’s official. Q and U are married.
They are forever bonded together as QU.
The “Q and U” wedding was held recently.
It is a traditional Kingsford Park Elementary School curriculum provided in the Kindergarten classrooms of Mary Lynn Maxwell, Robin Tryon and Carolyn Slobodian.
The blending of the letters Q and U to form words has become a memorable learning experience for Kindergarten students over the years.
According to Maxwell, the students paraded down the hall in their fancy clothes with their Mr. Q and Miss U puppets, sang wedding songs and walked right down into the school café, where they enjoyed a lovely “sermon” given by “Reverend Maxwell.”
The students also sang songs and enjoyed a delicious piece of QU’s wedding cake.
“We even brought gifts for the happy couple that began with their special sound – quilts, quarters, quarts, Q-tips, questions and quacking ducks,” Maxwell said. “We danced and enjoyed the reception so much!”
