Walden School recently celebrated the graduation of the class of 2019. Before receiving their diplomas, each of the 29 graduates highlighted his or her Walden experience in personal speeches and wowed the audience with musical performances. With heartfelt remarks from Head of School Terra Toscano, Walden alum Casey Shatraw and 6th-grade teachers Ryan Graber and Danica Hamilton, the class was sent off to the next step in their educational journey.
