Moving Up to Middle School


Throughout the district, fifth-graders from Smithtown’s elementary schools celebrated the end of their elementary days and marked the beginning of their journey to their respective middle schools.

During the moving up ceremonies, the fifth-grade classes celebrated their accomplishments and paused to reflect on their educational journeys so far, awaiting what lies ahead as sixth-graders in Accompsett, Nesaquake or Great Hollow middle schools. Building principals offered words of advice for the soon-to-be middle schoolers – reminding them to take the lessons they learned both socially and academically – as they take the next step in their educational careers.
