A quick but quite unique wedding, requiring preparation unequal to any other, took place Friday morning -- uniting the letters Q and U.
The kindergarten class at Messiah Lutheran Preschool and Kindergarten in Wauconda held the ceremony with 15 students participating.
Nine groomsmen represented the U's and six bridesmaids the Q's.
Teachers Shannah Howell and Teresa Neumeier started the week reading the book "The Wedding of Q and U," learning words that blend the two letters.
"Our goal, always, is to use real-life experiences and a variety of teaching styles to help our students remember word spellings, letter sounds and, now, rules of our English language," Howell said.
The school's director, Erica Jawnyj, officiated the ceremony and read from the book. Students said their alphabet vows before parents, siblings and schoolmates. A short reception was held after the ceremony.
"We hope, that from this experience, the children learn that Q always needs U to form words, but more importantly, that learning is fun," Howell added.
