Preschoolers graduated or moved up on June 17
Wednesday, June 17, was a beautiful, sunny morning as the graduation and moving-up celebration was held at St. Philip’s Nursery School. Twelve 4-year-old “Ducks” celebrated their accomplishments at the nursery school, surrounded by family and friends. Twenty 2- and 3-year-olds received certificates marking their move to the next age group in September.
Laura Mitchell, superintendent of the Garrison Union Free School District, congratulated the graduates in her address to their families. Stephanie Impellittiere, principal of Garrison School, was recognized by Nursery School Director JoAnne Chadwick: “Mrs. Impellittiere will be retiring this June, and through the years, she has always made the time to come to our graduation ceremonies. We wish her all the best!”
