Although a thread of storms threatened the day, Bloomfield High School’s 156th graduation ceremony took off without a hitch. Graduates marched from Oakeside Bloomfield Cultural Center to the high school with their heads held high, full of pride and spirit to receive their diplomas.
After a year of uncertainty of the ceremony location, the decision was made to hold the ceremony in the high school gym. Traditionally, Bloomfield’s graduation takes place at Foley Field. However, with the condemning of the bleachers and the discovery of arsenic in the soil, the tradition was temporarily forbidden, which served as an upset for many students and families. Fortunately, the moral of the night was extremely positive.
“The graduation was very well-organized and even though it didn’t take place at Foley Field, there was no need for disappointment. Everything went smoothly and it was a great time,” said graduate Mark Siembab.

    while the graduation might have been well organized, maybe something should have been planned for afterward…..
    shortly after graduation, about 30 cars full of rowdy bloomfield graduates swarmed the parking lot of the broad st mcdonalds. they blocked off all of the exits and almost caused quite a few accidents. Then for about 10 minutes they hung themselves out of thier cars yelling and screaming. it was nice to see how mature the bloomfield class of 2010 is…

And we can get this project completed in time for Montclair's sesquicentennial when we can stick a fork into historic preservation as a public policy.
