TASIS Middle School Bids Farewell to Eighth-Grade Class

The TASIS Middle School held its annual Moving-Up Ceremony in the Palmer Center on the afternoon of June 4. The lovely ceremony, which commemorates the passage of students from Middle School to High School, included remarks from Headmaster Christopher Nikoloff and Middle School Dean of Student Affairs MJ Breton, three impressive student speeches, three elegant musical selections, the announcement of awards (congratulations to the recipients listed below!), and the presentation of graduation certificates to 51 students.

The ceremony can be viewed in full above, and photos can be found on the TASIS SmugMug page (more will be added soon).
