2016 Graduation Ceremony

It was another memorable graduation ceremony at North Branch School. Graduates shared memories and insights that made the gathering of students and families laugh, cry, and appreciate the community of which we are all a part.

Many thanks from the class of 2014

Here is one last video from this year’s graduation ceremony. This class of sixteen had many teachers in the years they were at North Branch. They thank them all in this video! The audio in the beginning is from the Thanksgiving program in 2009, when the graduates were in fourth grade.



The graduating class of 2014

On June 3rd, we said goodbye to the largest graduating North Branch class in the school’s history. Sixteen students graduated – many of them had been at NBS for more than eight years. In keeping with North Branch tradition, they all received an engraved Jefferson Cup. We wish all of the graduating students good luck and health as they begin their journey into high school. I will have more videos from graduation (including the teacher thank you segment) in the coming week. Happy summer!



North Branch Class of 2013

Congratulations to all six of our 8th grade graduates! Sarah Gerome (K/1 teacher for these students), don’t miss the 3:15 mark – the graduates and audience gave you a virtual hug. I will post another video of the program soon.

The graduates

Here is the second video of our June 1st graduation ceremony. I hope you enjoy it. Congratulations once again to the graduates, their families and their teachers! Look for some breakout dancing around the 3:40 mark…

The North Branch School Graduating Class of 2012

What could I possibly say that would do justice to the ceremony on Friday night? This year’s graduation was the 27th year of graduating 8th graders and the start of North Branch’s 30th year. We said goodbye to five graduates and to Michael, our beloved senior and art teacher. There were happy and sad tears and also a lot of laughter. I ended up with so much video from the evening I split it into two parts. Here’s the first one!

Special thanks to Jennifer Stuart for working with the 7th and 8th graders to compose the graduation song used in the video.
