Advancing to Next Chapter


The educational achievements earned by district fifth- and eighth-grade students were celebrated and applauded this June during building level moving up ceremonies.

Following years of hard work, dedication and service to their school communities, the students were collectively applauded and praised by administrators and several local officials.

At Blue Point Elementary School’s moving up ceremony, students were honored with Presidential Academic Awards, New York State Comptroller’s Award and three community scholarships. Reflecting on their elementary years, students from each class also shared poem “couplets” about the six years they spent at Blue Point. To conclude the program, each fifth-grader was presented with a commemorative moving up certificate and collectively joined together to perform the song, “Watch As We Walk On Our Way.”
