Sending Montville's graduating eighth graders off in style
Montville — Students at Tyl Middle School got a memorable, and colorful, sendoff from a handful of staff and faculty on the last day of school Wednesday.
Eighth grade science teacher Jessica Biekert, dressed as an ostrich, guidance counselor Meghan Occhialini as a blue unicorn, eighth grade math teacher Jenna Crincoli as a dinosaur and social worker Sasha Discuillo as a pink flamingo, staked out a position on a small bluff by the parking lot exit wearing the inflatable costumes to bid farewell to the students.
The quartet was back at the school Wednesday evening, in more traditional dress, for the graduation ceremony for the eighth grade class.
