Lotspeich Closing Exercises

Lotspeich bid a heartfelt farewell to its fifth-graders, sending them off to sixth grade during the 99th annual closing exercises. Fifth-graders walked up the aisle accompanied by music played by teacher Robin Wilson and took their seats on the stage in Founder’s Hall. Head of Lotspeich Carolyn Fox shared some interesting highlights from the school year, and commended the fifth-graders and faculty. “Thank you to our faculty and students for a lasting gift of wisdom,” she said. First-graders and fifth-graders then sang their buddy song in honor of the friendships they honed throughout the year. “That little song touches my heart every year,” Fox said. Fox also shared some of the fifth grade’s accomplishments, including reviving the fifth-grade newspaper and the founding of the Crazy Fun Community Service Club. Teachers Zoe Paraskevopoulos and Karla Balskus then shared personal reflections about each student. Head of School Chris Garten gave closing remarks and congratulated the students on their hard work and many accomplishments. The ceremony ended with fifth-graders singing Goodbye Lotspeich, written by art teacher Jody Knoop. Click here for more photos from the ceremonyClick here to read more stories from Lotspeich.
