Maturity was on display as the eighth-graders of Robert Frost marked their transition to high school at a June 24 moving up ceremony in the school’s gymnasium.

After the traditional processional and Pledge of Allegiance, first up was Principal Eliana K. Levey.

“It has been such a pleasure to watch them mature and grow,” said Levey, describing her students, before she told them, “There is nothing you cannot do if you believe in yourselves.”

Next on the program were speeches from Student Council co-presidents Zachary Cresciullo and Lindsay Dominique.

“Goodbye Robert Frost, and hello to the high school Class of 2019,” said Cresciullo.

Dominique talked about succeeding in high school and making good choices, before telling her classmates, “Good luck and congratulations on making it to high school.”

Levey and associate principals Charles Cobb and Gary Ramonetti handed out student awards before the evening’s main act – the presentation of graduation certificates to each proud student.

Closing out the ceremony, Deer Park High School Principal James Cummings addressed his future students. “My advice is to take advantage of what high school has to offer,” he told them, urging the young men and women to find activities and experiences to connect to help build their bright futures.
