Northwest Third-Graders Move Up to PAMES


More than 230 students at Northwest Elementary made the official transition from third grade to fourth grade at a new school when they walked in their moving-up ceremony on June 24.

Held in the high school auditorium, the students filed into their seats to “Pomp and Circumstance” and took part in a class-wide singing of “We Are The World,” led by music teacher Roxanne Tannenbaum.

Each student was called up to receive their certificate of completion. Principal Vincent Todisco emceed the event and delivered closing remarks, congratulating all the youngsters on this important milestone. The students will be attending Park Avenue in the fall.

The students sang “What a Wonderful World” to close out the ceremony.
