On Saturday, May 2, Mr. Nammack and Dr. Flocco embarked on a multi-town journey to deliver gifts to the 24 seniors who comprise this year’s cohort of “Lifers.” The annual celebration of students who have attended MKA since Kindergarten was canceled this year due to concerns about COVID-19. The Development Office still wanted to share gifts acknowledging this group, and Dr. Flocco and Mr. Nammack got the job done!
Beginning in Glen Ridge, they traveled to West Orange, South Orange, Chatham, Morris Plains, Franklin Lakes, Totowa, North Caldwell, Cedar Grove, Verona, Montclair, Upper Montclair, and Rutherford. Depending on families’ decisions, they left packages on the doorstep or rang the doorbell, stepped back, and waited for families to come to the door. On a beautiful spring day, Mr. Nammack and Dr. Flocco showed the students who have been at MKA for 13 years that they are valued and appreciated. You can view all photos here.
