Ms. OIt was a fabulous fête for FMA’s resident fashionista Mrs. Rosalind O’Sullivan, who, this year, is retiring after molding young minds in Cambridge for over 54 years. On Saturday, June 8th, attendees at the Habitat in Belmont donned silk flowers and came together for an elegant tea to honor FMA’s beloved Mrs. O.

The outside tea party was fit for a queen—complete with vintage cups and saucers, various varieties of tea, quiche and dainty sandwiches. The piece de resistance was the dessert: high-heeled cupcakes, not only fashionable, but delectable, thanks to the Astrove Family.

Class photographs and family photos filled the bookcases and tables. Mrs. Lincoln and the FMA students created centerpieces which decorated the tables, adding to the beauty of the perfect day.

Mrs. O’Sullivan’s family attended, including her daughter and beautiful granddaughters, as well as her sisters and other close relatives. Memorable speeches were given by Superintendent Salim, Council Member Fred Fantini, former colleagues, teachers, friends and family. Each person shared unique memories and the special ways Mrs. O have touched their lives, as she has touched each of ours.

Special gifts were presented, Caitlin O’Donnell presented The FMA Reading Room will be renamed The “Rosalind Aldrich O’Sullivan Reading Room” , included 50 new sets of books. Jen Martin presented a wordle which included many fabulous words shared by staff, Amazing the most common word used to describe her. Mrs. O was even presented with a key to the city of Cambridge. In the fall, the corner of Windsor St. and Broadway will be named after her. 

Ms. O’Sullivan has touched so many lives. We thank her for her dedication, excellence in teaching and compassion. She is a true inspiration and will be greatly missed!
