In mid-June, each of the seven elementary schools in the Connetquot Central School District held its own “moving up” ceremony to honor its fifth graders as they advance to middle school. Proud family members watched as the students performed musical numbers, received special awards, and were recognized individually as elementary school graduates. Connetquot Central School District congratulates each fifth grade graduate and wishes them a wonderful middle school experience.

Twelfth graders from Connetquot High School recently returned to their former elementary schools for the district’s traditional “senior walk” celebrations. Sporting their caps and gowns, the seniors processed around the exteriors of their respective elementary schools while current students cheered them on with great excitement. This was a heartwarming experience for the soon-to-be high school graduates, as well as the proud elementary school faculty and staff who fondly remember them as young children.

Students at John Pearl Elementary School are patriotic and proud. In fact, each Friday of the school year, the entire John Pearl community dresses in red, white and blue attire, and salutes the American flag. Second grade teachers Alicia Feinberg and Stephanie Bergen even took it upon themselves to apply for a grant from the Connetquot Foundation for the Advancement of Children, which supplied the large American flags that now fly in front of the school, surrounding the school sign.

This Memorial Day, students of all grade levels participated in a variety of activities to honor the nation’s heroes. Among these was a vibrant hallway displayed created by Diane Boccio’s third grade class, depicting American flags when viewed from one angle and saluting soldiers from another.
