On Thursday, June 6, the IMS Lower School Class of 2019 participated in the Moving UP Day Celebration to mark their graduation from the fourth grade.
Ms. Jordan, Head of Lower School, welcomed family, friends, faculty, and most importantly, students, to the special ceremony. Of the 14 students making up the Class of 2019, she remarked, “They spent much of the year learning to harness their voices and explore the power of words. This is a stage full of enthusiastic contributors and students…It is a group of fierce debaters and equally fierce peacemakers. And above all else, it is a band of bards. Lyricists, storytellers, and poets, the work they produce is poignant, funny, and will knock you over with powerful truths.”
In their final performance together as fourth graders, students sang “Take on the World,” by Sabrina Carpenter and Rowan Blanchard, accompanied by Ms. Banks. Then, students in pre-k through third grade bid their older friends farewell with a rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Harold Arlen/Yip Harburg, accompanied by Ms. Banks.
