Farewell, fifth grade

Brookwood School’s fifth grade leaders of the Lower School have proven themselves ready for Middle School. To mark the occasion, students participated in a graduation ceremony. The class sang “Lean on Me” by Bill Withers as a way to commemorate the bond that the class has. Each year, fifth grade students write an essay describing their favorite Lower School memories. This year, Kennedy Turner, Grant Greene, and Ben Burrus shared their memoirs at the ceremony. Fifth grade teachers Mrs. Lauren Harrell and Mrs. Kelli Zolt shared a farewell poem created to describe the unique personality traits of each member of the class. The program concluded with each student walking across the stage to receive their fifth grade graduation diploma from Headmaster Dr. Randy Watts.
Located in Thomasville, GA, Brookwood School is a private school for grades JK-12. Students benefit from a challenging academic program, fine and performing arts, competitive athletics, and a wide selection of extracurricular activities.
