Ridgefield Early Learning Center preschool promotion to be held

Event to be held Wed., June 10; not open to the general public

RIDGEFIELD — The end-of-year outdoor ceremony for the first “graduating” class of the Ridgefield Early Learning Center will be held Wednesday as 25 preschoolers will be promoted to kindergarten.

The event will take place outdoors and include social distancing measures. It will be held Wed., June 10, from 5-6 p.m. at the Ridgefield Administrative & Civic Center (RACC), 510 Pioneer Street, in Ridgefield.

In the procession, the children (accompanied by their parents) and wearing special graduation hats and leis, will walk around the building, get their photo taken and receive their promotion certificates at the top of the building’s historic steps. 

Kindness 911 has been invited to the event and will serve as a meaningful presence for the 25 graduates. Kindness 911 is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded and headquartered in Clark County.  It connects local law enforcement agencies with those they directly serve.  

Through thoughtful and intentional means, it recognizes individuals/groups for their genuine, positive impact on their community.  The organization’s “Kindness Cops” are known to catch individuals in a kind act or surprise them simply to show their appreciation.  

Kindness 911 also donates financially to charities supported by local law enforcement in the name of those who exemplify kindness, compassion and goodwill.

Parking is available at the RACC and at Union Ridge Elementary School.  Due to COVID-19, this event is not open to the general public.
