Our Annual Step-Up Ceremony (also known as graduation), held on May 16th was a huge success, with many thanks to our staff member Cindy, who organized this fabulous event. In attendance were our 8th grade class (pictured here) leaving us for high school, as well as many other incoming and returning students we are excited about working with next year. In addition, the room was filled with our families and friends, board members, donors, teachers and administrators of our partner schools, as well as our wonderful volunteers who were honored for their commitment to our students and our program.
Special thanks to Synergy School for hosting this event, Laura and Martin for their MC duties, Ivy for speaking about her excitement to start college next year, and all the student speakers. After the excitement was over, our staff returned to a quiet office on Monday, a bit sad that we will not see most of our students until September. However, we are gearing up for our summer program, and we are looking forward to getting to know our incoming 5th and 6th grade students better at Summerbridge.
