Elementary Moving Up Ceremonies Celebrate Students’ Successes

A plethora of joyous moving up celebrations recently took place in the Sachem Central School District, recognizing the transition of fifth-grade students from elementary to middle school. They served as a delightful opportunity to recognize excellence in education and allowed the students to reflect on their elementary school experience. 
At each of the building ceremonies, held at either Sachem High School North or East, students took the stage of the auditorium dressed to impress as they received a diploma signifying their graduation from elementary school. As part of the ceremonies, each building recognized a number of students for outstanding performances across all areas of the curriculum, in addition to separate awards for attendance, citizenship and leadership. 

A long-standing Sachem tradition, the goal of each ceremony is to celebrate past student accomplishments and empower students to continue on the path of educational success as they advance on to middle school.
