Inspiring New Walk Tradition Unites Seniors and Primary Schoolers

Inspiring New Walk Tradition Unites Seniors and Primary Schoolers

Beginning a memorable new tradition, high school seniors traveled to their respective primary school buildings for a senior walk on June 18. The graduates paraded through JQA and May Moore as the younger students lined the hallways, followed by a question-and-answer period where outgoing second-graders had the chance to talk to and gain inspiration from the seniors.

“These seniors spent 13 years in school, and they put a lot of hard work in and had a lot of fun,” said JQA Principal Christopher Molinelli. “We are really proud of them.”

A ‘Classic’ Moving Up for May Moore’s Second-Graders

At May Moore, the annual moving up ceremony for second-graders on June 7 marked the transition from primary to intermediate school, from one stage of education to another. Smiles and memories abounded, and after each graduating class and child had been recognized, and all the songs – from Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors” to the school’s theme tune – had been sung, these proud Falcons marched down the aisles to the uplifting sound of “Wings” by Little Mix.

Reflecting on the ceremony, Konecny said, “This year, our schoolwide theme was’ Start Your Engines! May Moore was the first pit-stop on our students’ educational journey, and we hope when they think back in reverse they will remember us as classic.”

TangerKids Grant Presented to May Moore

TangerKids Grant Presented to May Moore

At the May 22 Board of Education meeting, Tanger Outlets General Manager Nancy Larson presented a $75,000 grant check to May Moore teachers Alannah Boccard and Susan Mirman. The funding, part of the TangerKIDS grants program, will support literacy in the school’s autism program.
“It is a pleasure and an honor to give money to worthy causes, and the school systems are clearly our worthiest cause,” said Larson, who noted that this was Tanger’s 10th anniversary in Deer Park.  

“We are so proud of Mrs. Boccard and Mrs. Mirman,” said Principal Alicia Konecny. “This grant focuses on concepts of print, repetitive language and using picture clues to tell the context of a story. Big books are beneficial in our autism program because they provide a large visual for small group guided reading. Thank you to Tanger for giving back to their local community.”
