MKA Celebrates the Class of 2024 “Lifers”

On Thursday, April 25, the annual ceremony celebrating MKA’s graduating “Lifers” was held at Upper School in the Johnson Family Academic Center. Each of the 22 students from the Class of 2024 who have attended MKA since they were in Pre-K, Kindergarten, or first grade received an MKA blanket and a photo frame containing a photo from their first year of school alongside their senior portrait. Advisors, teachers, administrators, parents, and students enjoyed recognizing and honoring this special MKA milestone.

Speaking at the event, the Head of Upper School and Assistant Head of School for Strategic Initiatives Dr. David C. Flocco, shared memories that only students who attended MKA for their entire school life would know. He shared thoughts and advice from former long-time Head of Primary School Ginger Kriegel and Primary School teacher Pat Parke who knew these students from their first days at school. He said, “Those of you who have spent your entire school years at MKA carry a profound sense of loyalty, belonging, and investment in our community. You and your family’s steadfast presence fosters continuity, stability, and a sense of tradition, enriching the school's culture and leaving an indelible mark on its legacy."
