Class of 2016 Count Down 25 Days Until Graduation

On Monday, the twenty-two members of the Class of 2016 gathered together in front of Hargroves House for a special celebration kicking off the twenty-five day countdown to their Greene Street Friends School graduation.


After enjoying Chipotle for lunch, students heard from Director of Development Maani Waldor and Head of School Ed Marshall about the Greene Street Friends School alumni community. They highlighted the connections among graduates across the generations and the many ways that alumni can continue to remain involved beyond graduation.


This tradition was started by Emily Harmar in 2005 to help the 8th grade begin the transition from being students to being alumni. Nine of the soon-to-be graduates – more than one third of the class! – have been at GSFS since Pre-Kindergarten or Kindergarten, nearly their entire lives.


“The luncheon was good because I realized that this was going to be my last days at Greene Street Friends,” said Nile ’16. “It felt good to spend it was teachers and classmates. The time together was really special.”
