District Students Move Up to Middle and High School

Bayport-Blue Point School District’s fifth- and eighth-graders celebrated their promotions to middle and high school during commemorative moving up ceremonies at the end of June. Surrounded by their family, friends and teachers, the students took part in the traditional ceremonies by reflecting on their years spent at their respective buildings, performing a number of songs and proudly crossing the stage to receive their moving up certificates.

“It seems like just yesterday that your children entered the doors of Blue Point Elementary School as little kindergartners full of excitement and possibilities,” said the school’s principal, Diana Ketcham. “As the years went by, wonderful friendships were formed, important lessons were learned and today, those same boys and girls now stand before us as young ladies and gentlemen, full of promise and potential, ready to enter our middle school and begin a new and exciting phase in their lives.”

In addition to the certificates of promotion, several students were also honored during their school’s ceremony for the academic and character-focused efforts they have put forth during their time in the building.
