We had a wonderful send-off assembly today, during which we came together as a school and celebrated this special moment with our 5th graders.* Each 1st through 5th grader got a flag to carry - one color per grade to symbolize our multiculturalism - that counts down how many years they have until their Capstone.
The 5th graders performed "Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor," by Irving Berlin with lyrics from "The New Colossus" by Emma Lazarus. And then students from each track then spoke about their trips and what they hoped to learn on them. It was truly an awesome, inspiring moment.
Thanks to all the teachers, students, and administrators - and particularly Peter Musselman - who helped to make this wonderful assembly happen!
