Fifth-Graders Move Up to Middle School

On Thursday, June 21, students, parents, teachers, principals and administrators beamed with pride throughout Central Boulevard, Charles Campagne and Kramer Lane Elementary Schools as the fifth-graders concluded the first level in their education and prepared to advance to the second level, middle school. Each of the three buildings held moving-up ceremonies, during which principals congratulated the students and offered words of inspiration for the future Class of 2019.

Central Boulevard Principal Steven Furrey addressed parents and special guests, stating, "Moving up is always an exciting time for our fifth-graders, as they are taking a big step in going to the middle school. They are ready for the changes the middle school can provide, and they usually welcome them."

Charles Campagne Principal Angelita Cintado expressed heartfelt sentiments and congratulated her students by stating, “You have successfully reached a very important milestone in your academic journey. I know that your years at CCS have been significant in providing you many positive, fun and memorable learning opportunities. As you move on to JFK Middle School, I encourage you to build on your acquired love of learning!”

Kramer Lane Principal Kerri McCarthy beamed with pride as she said, “Congratulations to Kramer Lane’s Class of 2012. On behalf of the Kramer Lane faculty and staff, we wish you continued success.”

The moving-up ceremonies featured the Pledge of Allegiance, the singing of “The Star-Spangled Banner” and the reciting of “The American’s Creed” by William Tyler Pope. The students were awarded their diplomas, thus signifying the end of one school experience and the beginning of another.

Congratulations to all of the elementary students for the completion of another year of excellence!
