The adorability factor was at its highest as 48 kindergarteners took front stage in little ties and blazers at their graduation ceremony on the Maple Avenue campus. Along with rousing rounds of “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad” and “First Grade, Here We Come!” (sung to the tune of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame”) the K-Grads also recited, “Little Boys’ Pockets” without missing a beat:
Little boys' pockets hold magical things
Earthworms, apple cores, a mess of strings,
But this treasure is nothing to the wealth one finds
In little boys' hearts and little boys' minds.
During the moving up ceremony, Brunswick Pre School teachers read commendations for each of their students. Tributes included “great sense of fair play and sportsmanship on the playground,” “curiosity and enthusiasm each and every day,” “willingness to always help others,” “a true friend to all,” “kind and caring,” “zest for knowledge,” “infectious positive attitude,” “never-ending curiosity about the natural world,” and “pride and dedication that [he] puts into his kindergarten work each and every day.”
Brunswick’s future Class of 2024 is well on its way to living up to the School motto, “Courage, Honor, Truth.”
