On June 22, the Wading River Elementary School community celebrated the accomplishments of 105 fifth-grade students during the school’s annual Moving-Up celebration. Principal Stephen Donohue welcomed all in attendance and addressed the graduates with words of wisdom and advice. In his remarks, he stated, “It’s hard to believe the past five years have come and gone so quickly. Now you’re ready to continue your journey at Prodell Middle School…Set your goals high, follow your dreams, and reach for the stars.” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Harriet Copel also had special remarks for the fifth graders. “Take with you the lessons you’ve learned here as you move on from elementary school,” she stated.
Following the ceremony, parents and family members were invited to visit the fifth-grade classrooms to view student projects and enjoy refreshments with their special graduates!
