Bala Cynwyd Middle School Recognizes 8th Graders

On Thursday morning, June 13, 2019, Bala Cynwyd Middle School held its annual Eighth Grade Recognition Ceremony.

Parents, guardians, extended family and friends gathered in the auditorium and cafeteria to watch the 8th graders receive awards and their promotion certificates. In September, these promising students will move on Lower Merion and Harriton high schools.

Interim Principal Dr. Mark Pellico joined members of his staff in presenting awards for excellence in academics, creative writing, athletics, sportsmanship, community service, visual arts, instrumental and vocal music. Additional awards were presented to students who overcame difficulty or showed great kindness to their classmates.

After the ceremony, families gathered in the gymnasium and outside the school for photos and celebrations.

Congratulations, BCMS Class of 2019, and all the best as you head to high school in September!
