Closing Exercises: ‘Great Year Any Way You Measure It’

The Brunswick community gathered in Dann Gymnasium on Tuesday, June 4, for Closing Exercises — an annual spring event to conclude the school year and honor students and faculty for outstanding accomplishments in the classroom, on the athletic fields, and throughout the community.
“It’s been a great year in any way you can measure it,” Head of School Thomas W. Philip noted, “and we should all be grateful for our individual and collective success.”

Philip also encouraged Upper and Middle Schoolers to consider all those who made the year so special — teachers, advisors, coaches, maintenance staff members, kitchen staff members, and the administration — and concluded by saluting the students themselves. 

“Thank you all for your hard work, for your support of each other, for your involvements beyond the classroom, and for your sportsmanship on the playing field,” he said. 

“More than anything, you make Brunswick School what it is — when you are at your best, we are truly the great school we work so hard to be.”

The event concluded with the traditional “Moving Up” Ceremony, as eighth-grade students were welcomed to the Upper School and juniors rose to become the senior class.
