On June 14, 15 and 16, 2022, fifth grade students from the Syosset elementary schools participated in moving up ceremonies as they celebrated the culmination of their elementary education and advancement to the secondary level. The students, eager and well-prepared to enter H.B. Thompson or South Woods Middle School this fall, beamed with excitement and pride as they came together to celebrate their accomplishments in front of audiences during celebratory outdoor ceremonies.
During the ceremonies, fifth graders from A.P. Willits, Berry Hill, J. Irving Baylis, Robbins Lane, South Grove, Village and Walt Whitman listened to sage advice from Board of Education trustees, PTA presidents, and proud principals.
The students received certificates to recognize their achievement in front of family, faculty members, Board trustees, and friends, who all wished them well as they continue their educational journeys.
