Q and U live happily ever after at Covert Avenue

It was a memorable day for Covert Avenue School’s kindergarteners as Mr. Q and Ms. U were united in marriage. The adorable ceremony incorporated all the highlights of a typical wedding, while emphasizing the students’ classroom studies.

 Kindergartners from each class were all dressed up as they entered the school’s gymnasium. One couple from each class served as Mr. Q and Ms. U and walked down the aisle, which was covered by a paper runner decorated with the letters “Q” and “U.” Principal Mary Natoli officiated at the ceremony, explaining that Mr. Q and Ms. U would be joined in marriage and spend their lives working together to make words.

Each Mr. Q promised to let Ms. Q stand by him in all the words they make, and each Ms. U pledged to follow Mr. Q in all the words he planned to make, but reminded him that she could make her own words, too. A ringbearer then handed out ring pops to each Mr. Q and the rings were placed on each Ms. U. After the ceremony, students and their families enjoyed a snack back in their classrooms.
