OTISVILLE'S FIFTH GRADE MOVE-UP CEREMONY

Posted June 21 at 12:16pm

Otisville's four 5th grade classes celebrated their Moving Up to the middle school in the school’s gym on June 18.  Cheering for their growth and accomplishments were family members, faculty, staff, and school and district administrators.


School Principal Vincent Biele offered words of praise and appreciation for the 2018 graduating students. The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Kameryn Lyons and Nicolas Grusz. Audrey Guido, Kiwanis K-Kids president, delivered the farewell speech on behalf of her graduating class.  She thanked the teachers, administrators and parents for all of their support over the past six years.  She reflected on all the chorus and band concerts and the drama productions that the students were a part of during the year, and she closed her speech by quoting Harry Potter, "Working hard is important.  But there is something that matters more - Believing in yourself." 

Teachers Mrs. Graziano, Mrs. Hagerty, Mrs. Louey, Mrs. Mynders, and Mrs. Frawley introduced each of their students, and Mr. Biele and Mrs. Downey presented moving-up certificates.


A multi-media presentation put together by Mrs. Fenfert was a real crowd-pleaser. It featured a year's worth of picture-perfect moments. The ceremony culminated with the four classes singing together—"Count on Me" by Bruno Mars” and "What Makes you Otisville" with words arranged by Mrs. Fenfert.


CONGRATULATIONS Otisville 5th Graders! We wish you a great new adventure at Minisink Valley Middle School.
