Students Honored in Middle School Recognition Ceremony

The Class of 2025 closed their chapter on their middle school adventure and will begin their upper school experience come August. To celebrate their successes, the class was honored at the Middle School Recognition Ceremony on Tuesday, June 8, 2021, in the Hackney Theater.
Due to COVID protocol, the event was livestreamed for parents and family members to join in the celebration.
It also marked the first time the students were in the Hackney Theater this year.
“I am delighted that we are able to be here together in this wonderful theater for the first time this year to celebrate the participation, effort and accomplishments of all of our students. You are, each and every one of you, interesting people, wonderful storytellers, keen judges of character and motive, formidable debaters, and loyal friends. And, perhaps above all this year, resilient spirits who show us how to keep moving forward—even in the face of a pandemic that threatened to keep us from doing what we love—living and learning together,” said Charlene Loope, interim head of middle school.
