Rochester Memorial School in Rochester, MA had their senior activities last week to send the 6th graders off to the Junior High next year in style.
The last week of school included a trip to Martha’s Vineyard on Wednesday. Each year the sixth graders and their families along with the sixth grade staff head to Martha’s Vineyard on the Woods Hole Ferry. They spend the day on the beach, and spending time in Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven. The Carousel is always a popular spot as well as the local ice cream parlors and souvenir shops. It’s a great day for the students to spend with their family, teachers and fellow students. Each year a t-shirt is designed for all the students to sign and wear for the outing.
Thursday night was the Sixth Grade dance. The students have a chance to get dressed up, enjoy some good food and dance to music by DJ Danni Kleiman. The cafeteria is decorated by the parents and staff and this year was “A Night to Remember’ theme giving the cafeteria a magical look.
The week ended with Graduation on Friday Morning as the Sixth Graders gathered with their families and teachers in the gym to reminisce about the year past and look forward to the year ahead. Awards were given out and memories of each student shared by the teachers.
It is a great tradition and a great way to send off the sixth graders to their new adventures in Junior High.
