Students in fifth and eighth grades celebrated milestones as they were promoted to the next stage of their education.
At Bayville Intermediate School and Locust Valley Intermediate School, students sang songs and listened to speakers commend them on their accomplishments and offer advice for a successful transition to middle school.
Locust Valley Middle School eighth graders took to the stage in green graduation robes, reminisced about the three years they spent at the school and accepted their moving-up certificates with pride. Members of the chorus performed “This Is Me” from “The Greatest Showman.”
Board of Education members and administrators celebrated with students and families at each of the moving-up ceremonies.
The slideshows below includes highlights of each ceremony.
