On Friday, June 17th our fifth graders remembered their time at the Haggerty School in a Moving-On Assembly. Our 30 fifth graders broke up into groups of 4 or 5 and presented a slide show of their favorite memories from each grade - kindergarten through fifth grade! Highlights included apple picking in kindergarten, visiting the Moakley Court House in second grade, scavenger hunting in Chinatown in fourth grade, and visiting the Farm School in fifth grade!
They also sang Hall of Fame by the Script, led by Ms. Irvin-Kent. Ms. Campbell gave a moving speech to this special group of fifth graders and reminded them to stay true to each other and themselves! They have spent time thinking about their transition away from Haggerty with Ms. Jess, our school counselor, and Nancy read some of their powerful words representing their beliefs and values that they will take with them to Vassal Lane Upper School - or beyond. They closed the assembly by placing an item in a time capsule that they will retrieve when they graduate from high school! Their parents were also given the opportunity to write their fifth graders a letter that they will read at that time. All the fifth grade families then ventured to the West Cambridge Youth Center for a celebration, including lunch, t-shirts, and a great slide show made by fifth grader Tavi! Thanks to the fifth grade teachers: Ms. Faucher and Ms. Stewart for a wonderful year! And to all the parents who helped make this celebration so special! We will miss you fifth graders!
