A new tradition begins: Eighth Grade Step-Up Celebration marks transition to Upper School

The entire eighth grade recently gathered with their families for the first-ever Step-Up Celebration, an event designed to acknowledge all the important work students have accomplished during their time in Middle School and create some excitement as they “step up” to Upper School. Students received a t-shirt and poster with quotes from their peers as Middle School Dean of Students John McDevitt read their reflection to the audience. The celebration culminated in a reception where students and their families reminisced about the Middle School years.
