Congratulations to the Grade 3 Class of 2019

Nashoba Brooks School celebrated the Grade 3 graduation on Monday, June 10, in a morning that included delightful music, touching words, and proud smiles.
Grade 3 ushered in the ceremony with a performance of “Ode to Joy” before Head of School Danielle Heard took the stage.

Danielle began by speaking of her love for children’s literature and expressed her love for one book in particular, Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey. The book tells the story of adventure, exploration, and reunification. Danielle reminded the graduates, “Even if we are headed to the same goal, we chart our own course...there is no single path.” With these words, she urged students and parents to understand that everyone should measure their accomplishments against their own growth and know that even the best-laid plans do not go exactly as anticipated on the first attempt. Through these experiences, we stretch farther and grow more.

Follow a performance of the “Bicycle Song” by Grade 2 students, the presentation of diplomas began.

With thoughtful memories and inspirational words, Grade 3 teachers Kristen Kosich and Peggy Gaffny congratulated each student one by one before receiving their diplomas from Assistant Head of Lower School Jane O’Connor. Halfway through the presentation of certificates, attendees paused as Grade 3 rose to sing “Lean on Me.” Grade 2 students joined Grade 3 students on stage to bring the ceremony to a close singing Gaudeamus Hodie and the Nashoba Brooks School Song.

We wish our Grade 3 students the best in their continuing education and as the Grade 3 boys move on to their “next schools.” We are excited to hear about all of our students’ future successes and encourage them to come back to Nashoba Brooks School often.
