Headed to High School

Speakers at Middle School Graduations thumbnail187539

On June 21, Connetquot Central School District graduated its eighth grade classes from Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School and Ronkonkoma Middle School. Each of the two schools held its own outdoor “moving up ceremony” at Connetquot High School, where the students will attend in the fall. Each ceremony featured a presentation of various achievement awards and concluded with the principals and assistant principals issuing certificates of graduation to each student individually.

Connetquot Central School District congratulates all of the middle school graduates and wishes them the best of luck in high school.

As part of their social studies curriculum, sixth graders at Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School recently enjoyed a celebration of ancient Greece. Prior to this, the students had been assigned different ancient Greek heroes, gods, goddesses and famous historical figures to research. At the celebration, they creatively presented information on their assigned people, even dressing up to resemble them. The students also enjoyed participating in mythology-themed readers’ theater and a game of trivia on ancient Greece.
