Moving Up to JHS


Memories and success stories flooded the minds of parents, students and educators in the Three Village Central School District as the elementary schools marked a milestone in the lives of this year’s sixth-grade class.

During the moving-up ceremonies, students reflected upon their years in each building, while faculty and staff members presented awards honoring individual scholars’ academic, athletic and community-minded achievements.

Melodic interludes at each ceremony showcased the students’ myriad of musical talents and left audiences with fond memories.

Just before the conclusion of each ceremony, the schools’ graduating classes were announced. As the students left their schools on this special day filled with an array of emotions, they were well prepared for life’s adventures ahead.

A Picture’s Worth 1,000 Words

Shortly before moving up to junior high, Minnesauke Elementary School sixth-graders had the chance to walk down memory lane and celebrate their developing artistic talents by reviewing a collection of self-portraits they created throughout their elementary years.

With the help of art teacher Christine Becker, the students marveled at how their skills have improved since first sketching themselves in kindergarten to this year’s most recent project.

Commending Achievements

The Board of Education honored and celebrated a myriad of accomplishments of both the district’s students and staff members at its June meeting.

W.S. Mount Elementary School second-grader Ryan Scriven was honored for his award-winning piece in this year’s New York State Association for Pupil Transportation School Bus Safety Poster Contest. Ryan received third place in Suffolk County for the K-2 division. His poster followed the contest’s theme of making the school bus a bully free zone.

Secondary student-scientists from R.C. Murphy and P.J. Gelinas junior high schools were honored for their successful competition seasons.

Murphy’s Science Bowl team was commended for their win at the Brookhaven National Laboratory/Long Island Regional Middle School Science Bowl contest. The team competed in the National Science Bowl Contest this spring.

Gelinas’ Science Olympiad team was also recognized for their 10th place finish at the National Science Olympiad Competition and for earning eight medals in the contest, including three first-place awards.

Gelinas eighth-grader Sahil Sangwan represented his school and district during this year’s National Spelling Bee in late May, making it to the third round.

The Board also thanked student representative George Zenzerovich for his year of service and presented the soon-to-be graduate with a scholarship for his continued education.
