"Middle O!" welcomes 6th graders to Fenway Park

Hundreds of incoming sixth grade students and their families visited Fenway Park yesterday for the first "Middle O!" celebration. The event welcomed students who will be entering BPS middle schools next month with food, games, prizes, resources, and readiness activities to help ensure a smooth transition. Mayor Menino, School Committee members and Superintendent Johnson joined middle school principals and other staff, partner organizations and volunteers, as well as special guest Wally the Green Monster, the Boston Red Sox mascot.

Sounds like a great time and what a way to welcome the school year! (even though the Sox are slumping)

All who participated were very polite and appreciative.
Congratulations to the planning group for a successful day.
