Moving Up


As they prepared to take a step toward their future, fifth- and eighth-graders in the Bayport-Blue Point School District took part in their building’s ceremonial moving up programs. Surrounded by family, friends and members of the district’s administration, the students proudly processed into their ceremonies and took seats of distinction, where they were greeted by their schools’ principals.

Elementary ceremonies were hosted at Bayport-Blue Point High School and included several musical selections and video slideshows, which highlighted the fifth-graders’ journeys through elementary school. At the middle school, students performed a number of musical selections and three eighth-graders shared the past, present and future memories and aspirations of the class.

To complete their promotion to middle and high school, each student crossed the stage to receive their moving up certificates as well as several awards and honors.
