Instead of one homeroom teacher, now students will have several. Homework turns more serious. Making and maintaining friends is a bit more tricky. Not only that, but students will be entering the world of preteens, with their tumultuous emotions.
Such is the transition from Elementary to Middle School, completed this year by 81 fifth graders who celebrated this move to MS, during a ceremony held on June 14, 2016.
Led by Elementary Principal Diann Osterlund and Head of School Hamilton Clark, the ceremony brought lots of pride to Grade 5 parents as they watched their daughters and sons looking elegant in white dresses or white shirts and ties.
Parents, teachers and children were celebrated on this special day.
