Last Thursday, 205 grade 8 students graduated from Auburn Middle School, and this is the final class to leave the Swanson Rd. facility as the new middle school is nearly complete. According to Superintendent Maryellen Brunelle, about 30 students will either attend Bay Path Regional Vocational Technical High School or another high school.

Even with that, the Class of 2019 will be around 175 and significantly larger than the 157 graduates from the Class of 2015 at Auburn High School. Additional school choice seats will bring a few more as well.

Student Council President Emma Gervais hosted the event and introduced the speakers. After Principal Joseph Gagnon welcomed the guests, Madison Poshkus led the Pledge of Allegiance.

Courtney Prescott read an excerpt from Mr. Brown’s Book of Precepts followed by AMS Band and Select Choir preforming the National Anthem. Dr. Maryellen Brunelle gave the Superintendent’s Address and AHS Valedictorian Emily Fokas was the Keynote Speaker.

During the Select Choir’s performance of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life” Principal Gagnon and Vice-Principal Matthew Carlson were escorted off the stage to dance with some students, a well received moment. The AMS band then played “Prelude to a Festival” and did an admirable job considering they lacked their most senior members.

The selected recipients of the ARC Essay Awards, Olivia Curnen and Sheeza Chaudry, read their meaningful essays to the audience, and the event was capped off with a photo montage assembled by Sherri Watson.

Congratulations to all and savor your high school experiences. Lists of the graduates and award winners follow.
