Last Thursday, Montessori Center School hosted its graduation reception in celebration of the graduating class of 2014.

MCS congratulated its graduates as they prepare for the next big phase of their education — junior high.

During the ceremony, graduating sixth-graders gave impressive and heartfelt speeches to a packed house highlighting their valued experiences at the school. Nearly half of the students who stood on the stage had attended Montessori Center since they were toddlers, and fondly referred to the school as their second home and the teachers as members of their family.

MCS Head of School Patricia Colby handed out diplomas to the graduating class and to those children who were moving up to the next program level.

We at MCS wish these students all the best and are so very proud of them! Each of them represents what is best about a MCS education in their own unique way. May they always remember that learning is fun, that you learn from mistakes, that everybody has gifts and challenges, that we are more similar than we are different and that we can solve big problems when we work together.

Our graduates are:

Max Alexander
Sophia Alexander
Katie Baker
Nathan Cohen
Sophia Colby
Kiara Linver
Parker May
Helena McGinnes
Alex Moosbrugger
Isabella Pinter
Dylan Sager
Jessica Uyeno
Emily Vesper
Jasper Williams

— Garrett Durand is the marketing director for Montessori Center School.
