The morning mist gave way to a beautiful day to celebrate our Class of 2025 as they said their final goodbyes to the Middle School at the 8th Grade Closing Ceremony held in Centennial Courtyard. A Middle School tradition, Middle School Head of School Shannon Schmidt offered reflections on each student before they received their graduation certificates from Head of School Chris Hughes. Earlier in the ceremony, outgoing Middle School president Naman S. '25 gave remarks and Latin teacher and school archivist Dante Beretta presented the class awards.
