On Monday, June 4, the Class of 2016 met at Childs Memorial Terrace to celebrate their final reunion as middle schoolers.
Friends, family, and teachers looked on with excitement as the soon-to-be graduates processed down the hill. Harry V. chronicled how time has changed for his classmates over the years in his speech. Bri H. inspired her peers to grow together in the Upper School with the constant refrain, "We can be like the McDonogh Oak."
Head of Middle School Darren Ford shared the advice of his former student Gianni V. '13 with the rising freshmen, offering tips on how to make the most of their upcoming years in the Upper School.
Each student crossed the stage to receive a well-earned diploma, and as the class rose to sing the Alma Mater with the OnStage vocal group, they joined the ranks of upper school students.
