Surrounded by proud family and friends, Frank J. Carasiti Elementary School second-graders participated in a ceremonial moving up event this June.

After a welcoming address from Principal Virginia Gibbons, the moving up day authors shared reflections on their time at FJC and hopes for what lies ahead in third-grade. The members of the second-grade service squad were also commended for the countless hours they dedicated throughout the year and several special awards were presented to select members.

With the help of the Rocky Point Rotary Club members, each second-grader proudly proceeded to the front of the ceremony to receive their official moving up sash, certificate and complementary dictionary. The class then joined together in song to conclude the program.
