Fraser Woods Montessori School held a kindergarten graduation ceremony at the school on June 7, and it held a ceremony that evening at the Newtown Meeting House for its eighth grade graduating class.
For the kindergarten ceremony, parents gathered in the school’s atrium to watch as the young students participated in a bridge crossing ceremony. Each student received a “degree” and walked across a small bridge. Students also presented their parents with a flower. All of the students received hugs.
For the eighth grade commencement ceremony, the graduating students shared speeches in front of all the attendees. According to the school, the graduates reminisced about their time at Fraser Woods Montessori School, sharing special memories, field trips, close relationships that they formed with younger classmates, and shared words of wisdom for their fellow classmates. The graduate speeches were then followed by student tributes that were written and read by their teachers.
