An Olympian sendoff for NES 5th graders

Fifth-grade graduation at Northbridge Elementary School was one to remember, as students took part in a variety of field-day Olympic-style events on June 1st. The entire grade also watched a slide show featuring pictures from birth to present day. The Committee organizing the activities started work on the production in January and enlisted the support of the community through fundraising efforts. The Committee was led by Kelly Hird L’Hommedien and Erin LaMonda and a first-ever Olympics theme was chosen for the day. Included were Olympic flags representative of the 5th Grade student population.
