Moving Up and Moving On

Northeast School held its annual moving up ceremony on June 23 to celebrate kindergarten students advancing to the next level in their educational journeys.

During each of the school’s three kindergarten ceremonies, family, friends, faculty, administrators and Board of Education members were musically and visually entertained as kindergarten students sang and danced to songs selected by their teachers.

The sounds of popular songs such as “Firework,” made famous by Katy Perry, and Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World” filled the gymnasium along with applause from the audience.

Additionally, students from Maria Lievano’s class had members of the audience up on their feet dancing and clapping along to an upbeat performance of “Anything” by Hedley.

Prior to Principal Dr. Pauline Collins’ closing remarks, select students were acknowledged and presented with perfect attendance awards. Under the direction of music teacher Nicole Altamura, kindergartners concluded the ceremony singing “Just Imagine” from the children’s television show “Barney” and “All for One,” performed in Disney’s “High School Musical 2.”
