A huge success


To the Editor:

The First Annual All-Island Eighth Grade Graduation Party was held at Nectar’s on Friday, May 20, organized by the parent teacher organizations representing the Edgartown, Oak Bluffs, Tisbury, West Tisbury, and Charter Schools, and funded by the Dukes County Deputy Sheriff’s Association.

The event was a huge success. The Minnesingers started off the evening with a short performance, and John Fiorito, MVRHS guidance counselor, welcomed the eighth graders as the upcoming class of 2015. The students were treated to Flatbread’s deliciouspizza and spent the evening dancing to the music of DJ Darren Belisle.

The organizers thank the following for their support in making the event possible:

The Dukes County Deputy Sheriff’s Association, Flatbreads at Nectar’s, Stop and Shop, the Youth Task Force, DJ Darren Belisle, Bonnie Deitz (cakemaker extraordinaire), the Toy Box, Edgartown Cinemas, John Fiorito, Minnesingers, and parent organizers and chaperones from each school.
