Congratulations and best of luck to our incoming grade 7 students!

Sixth graders complete their elementary education

 

WES sixth-graders gathered with family, friends, teachers and school leaders to celebrate the completion of their elementary school years during a formal ceremony on June 20 at the Watervliet Junior/Senior High School. View photos of the Grade 6 Moving Up ceremony on Facebook  

Kumail Haider and Cassandra Zawistowski served as Masters of Ceremony for the Moving Up celebration. They kicked off the ceremony by welcoming parents, family members and educators with heartfelt thanks and a few jokes.

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Lori Caplan and Board of Education President Sheri Senecal each addressed students offering words of advice and encouragement as the students prepare for the next step in their educational journey: junior high and high school.

With that journey in mind, Elementary Principal Loida Lewinter read to the sixth grade class from the book Oh the Places You'll Goby Dr. Seuss:  

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You're on your own. And you know what you know
And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go.
