Graduation 2021

Note from Wayne

Marlboro School Friday Note- 6/4/21


8th Grade Graduation:

What a perfect graduation last night with Muster Field proving to be an exceptional venue. It was also a sign of returning back to social gatherings, with about 100 people in attendance. Thank you to the JH students, Ani, Jesslyn and Rachel for making this celebration special. As always, it is bittersweet for us and we will dearly miss all 11 graduates.


Reminder: WCSU/Marlboro School Climate Survey:

Please complete this short and very helpful survey. Information from this survey will be used to guide future decisions at our school. Thank you!

Jamie Sheffield ( who rescues tortoises) was moved by the willingness of Marlboro students to collect dandelions, purple clovers and other wild plants to help feed his rescued tortoises that he offered to bring some of the tortoises to the school for the students to learn about and meet. The afternoon was a huge success!


Jamie stated, “It was a ton of fun. They had great questions, were respectful, gentle with the tortoises and great listeners.”


I am so proud of all our students, not only for their philanthropy, but their ability to shine in many educational settings.
