Frost Eighth Graders Move Up to New Challenges

For the 306 eighth graders of Robert Frost, the June 24 moving up event was a chance to reflect on the conclusion of one educational step, to receive awards and certificates, and to get ready for the new challenge of high school.

National Junior Honor Society Vice President Emily Franciscovich led the Pledge of Allegiance to start the ceremony, followed by addresses from Principal Eliana Levey, Student Council President Kayley Eising and Deer Park High School Charles Cobb.

“As we sit here today, many of us are anxious to finally be on summer break, while others of us have mixed feelings about moving up to high school,” Eising said in her speech. “Our days as middle schoolers are coming to an end, and we will finally be in high school. I feel confident in saying we are all prepared for whatever obstacles we will face in high school. We will be facing new experiences and challenges. We will inevitably be faced with peer pressure at some point, but in these moments, we must remember to be ourselves and not followers.”
