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.
Cecile Bouchardeau Weiland Luca is so cute! Congrats to him and the other “ducks.”
Thank you Raquel. We are going to miss St. Philip’s when Luca goes across the street to GUFS in September. JoAnne Chadwick and all the teachers do an incredible job. It’s a wonderful, nurturing place and Luca has grown so much while under their tutelage.
