Picture Perfect Promotion Ceremony

070715_3V_2.jpg

Sunshine blanketed the front lawn of P.J. Gelinas Junior High School as the building’s ninth-grade class took part in the school’s first outdoor moving-up ceremony this June.

Surrounded by proud parents, family members and educators, the students began the ceremony with a processional and took their seats as the Gelinas brass choir trumpeted a melodic tune. Administrators in attendance praised the soon-to-be high school students for their dedication, determination and scholastic aptitude before reassuring them that they were well prepared for the road ahead. Principal William Bernhard listed many of the accolades the class has collectively achieved during their time at Gelinas and reminded them that “anything is possible in your future if you really put your mind to it.”

Memories of the students’ time at Gelinas were punctuated through two students addresses, delivered by Matthew Grillo and Michael Giaquinto, as well as musical performances by Julia Pollina, Julia Campanella and the ninth-grade chamber choir.

As their names rang in the warm summer air, the students walked to the dais to receive their moving-up certificates and officially move up to Ward Melville High School.

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.

Role Reversal

P.J. Gelinas Junior High School ninth-grader Matthew Grillo had the chance to leave his books behind when he switched roles with William Bernhard and acted as principal for the day.

Matthew, one of the school’s student government presidents, began the morning by welcoming the student body over the public address system and spent the day meeting with staff members and students. In turn, Mr. Bernhard followed Matthew’s class schedule and participated in his courses, which included playing the drums in band. He explained that the program offered him the chance to interact with and learn from the student body.

The two did take a brief hiatus from the switch at one point in the day to allow Matthew to sit for an exam.
