CROTON-HARMON, N.Y. – Fifth-graders received a sweet welcome to Pierre Van Cortlandt Middle School on Monday during an ice cream social led by school staff and seventh- and eighth-grade student ambassadors.

The event, which was designed to allow the students to bond with new and old friends alike, provided each of the incoming fifth-graders with a full tour of the school, including the fifth-grade wing, gymnasiums, the band and chorus room, the computer lab, the nurse’s office and other vital parts of the facility, according to school officials.

Assistant Principal Michael Plotkin was the first to speak to the group, urging them all to be calm as they start their new school. Next were comments by Principal Barbara Ulm and counselors Carrie Beja and Rachel Bonilla, according to the school district.

School officials said many of the fifth-graders felt “more ready than before for school to begin.”
