Bala Cynwyd Middle School's 8th graders marked the end of a unique academic year with a unique promotion celebration.
Students from each team -- including students from LMSD@Home -- had the chance to walk across the stage to receive their promotion certificates during ceremonies that were live-streamed to their friends and families at home. Student speakers shared their thoughts on how they had matured and what they learned during middle schools years that were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Each team also enjoyed free snow cones, time for yearbook-signing and a selfie photo station with their friends and classmates, along with an awards ceremony and outdoor games and field activities.
In a few short months, these students will be starting their high school years at Lower Merion or Harriton. Congratulations to the BCMS Class of 2021!
