The COVID-19 global pandemic has changed the way we interact with each other.
How can the BB&N community support you? How can you support others? How can we be united at this time?
Let's show kindness and help each other.

Every BB&N graduation is a celebratory event, but none was possibly more jubilant than the one held for the Class of 2021 on June 11 on Nichols Field at the Upper School campus. Only a few months ago it was unclear whether an in-person graduation was even feasible, but with many COVID restrictions for Massachusetts lifted, the graduation ceremony took place "in real life," as students often like to say. The temperate, sunny day could not have been more perfect, or appreciated, by those in attendance.
Blue sky, fluffy clouds, light breeze. I'm drinking chilled, fresh-squeezed lemonade and listening to my friends' string quartet play 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' in the courtyard. I'm talking to some peers I hadn't really talked to much before this spring. Why have we never talked before? They're so cool.
The Upper School community gathered on Tuesday, June 8 to celebrate the Closing Ceremony, which marks the end of the school year and honors the accomplishments of many talented students. Along with the award presentations were musical performances by the Upper School Jazz Ensemble and Orchestra, as well as farewells to the Class of 2019 by student speakers from each class.
Thank you to the seniors for lending their voices to the blog and giving readers a sense for students' lives--on and off campus!
