Connetquot’s Idle Hour Elementary School celebrated an important educational milestone in the lives of this year’s fifth grade class with a moving up ceremony on June 25.

Held at Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School, the event earmarked the end of the 36 graduates’ elementary school years and the beginning of their journey through middle school. During the ceremony, each student was introduced and presented with a certificate representing the successful completion of their elementary school requirements, along with special awards. 

In addition to the proud family members and educators in attendance, John Allen, the district’s assistant to the superintendent, and Suffolk County Legislator William J. Lindsay III took part in the program and congratulated the new middle school students.
