Congratulations GWL Fifth Graders on Moving Up to the Middle School!

On Monday, June 18th, Principal Bridget Finder led a very memorable Moving Up Ceremony for all of her Glenwood Landing fifth graders. The theatre was filled with adoring family, friends and teachers who all applauded happily, as their children reminisced about their favorite memories in a more personal and creative manner to everyone’s enjoyment. Students also individually received their diplomas on stage from Principal Finder and sang beautiful songs under the direction of LiJu Cheung. 

Superintendent Dr. Peter Giarrizzo spoke to the fifth graders and congratulated them on this wonderful accomplishment. He asked them to think about a “yet” statement over the summer and that he will ask them about it at the beginning of the new school year. Additionally, NSMS Principal Mr. Robert Dennis welcomed his incoming sixth graders and said that while many of you might have mixed feelings about today to be leaving GWL (e.g., their home for many years); everyone at the middle school is excited to meet them!
