Four-year-old “Ducks” moving to kindergarten
St. Philip’s Nursery School in Garrison celebrated its 55th commencement on a sunny morning on June 14. Eleven four-year-old “Ducks” are headed to kindergarten and 19 two- and three-year-olds will move up in September to the next age group.
Laura Mitchell, superintendent of the Garrison Union Free School District, congratulated the graduates in an address to their families. John Griffiths, principal of Garrison School, and the Rev. Francis Geer, rector of St. Philip’s Church, also offered best wishes.
St. Philip’s Nursery School, a program of St. Philip’s Church since 1960, presents a morning pre-school program for two-, three- and four-year-olds. In addition to a play-based curriculum, the nursery offers music and movement, science and Spanish.
