Internship Breakfast

Students and mentors gathered in the cafeteria of Amity on Monday, June 17 for the Internship Breakfast.{{more}} The breakfast is a way for students who took part in the internship program to thank their supervisors as well as hear about others experiences.

Students dressed to impress to celebrate the end of their senior internship along with others who participated in Amity’s internship program. At the breakfast appreciation certificates were given out to each mentor in the program and everyone had a variety of breakfast foods to choose from.

Diana Marino, a senior at Amity who interned at the Jewish Community Center of Greater New Haven said “Interning was an amazing experience and I am so happy we were able to show thanks to our mentors by inviting them to the breakfast!”

Class of 2013 Makes Their Final Stride

Amity seniors made their final stride to receive their diplomas dressed in cap and gown on June 21 at 4 p.m. However this year’s graduation was much different than past years. For the first time in years the graduation was able to be held outside due to beautiful weather.

The sun was shining brightly as friends and family filled the bleachers, and the class of 2013 sat anxiously waiting to throw their caps high up into the air. A variety of speakers including fellow classmates, and administrators spoke highly of the class. Every word said touched the graduating seniors and added to the memorable day.

Alexis Schwartz, a student of the graduating class said “It is weird to say my time in high school has come to a close. Over the past four years Amity has prepared me for the future.” Though this may be the end of high school, it is only the beginning of the rest of their lives.

A Note From Me

I would like to personally congratulate Amity’s class of 2013. I wish you all the best in life and know you are all going to do amazing things. I have had the pleasure to write for this wonderful paper, but unfortunately this column will be my last as I will be going off to college in the fall. I will be attending Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey to major in film studies, but will also keep on writing and exploring the field of journalism. I want to thank The Orange Times for the experience of being published in the paper and for allowing me to be your Eyes of Amity.
