Maplewood Intermediate School held their fifth-grade awards assembly on Tuesday, June 21st at Walt Whitman’s North Gymnasium. Maplewood Principal Dr. Vito D’Elia welcomed parents and special guests congratulating the parents, students, and their teachers for their hard work and commitment in making 2015-16 such a successful year.

Walt Whitman Valedictorian Misha Patel, also a Maplewood graduate was a surprise guest speaker. “While sixth-grade will be fun, it’ll also be harder,” said Misha. “Just remember to always put school first, before things like TV or going on the computer. And make sure you try your best in everything you do.”

Dr. D’Elia, along with Assistant Principal Dr. Alison Bruno, greeted each 5th grader with a certificate. Physical Education Awards were given out by Ms. Gross, Mr. Slovak and Mr. Lauria after which Dr. Bruno recognized the many groups that help to make their years at Maplewood such a successful experience. Groups such as the Safety Patrol, Peer Mediation, SBM, and the Student Council were recognized. Dr. Bruno then presented the Presidential Award for Academic Achievement, and Dr. D’Elia the Presidential Award for Academic Excellence.
