Fifth-graders throughout the Copiague School District celebrated the completion of their elementary school days during their respective Class Day ceremonies on June 15 and 18 at the Copiague Middle School. The students reflected on their academic accomplishments, memories and looked forward to when they enter Copiague Middle School in September.

Administrators, faculty, parents and invited guests gathered to celebrate as the fifth-grade students proceeded into the auditorium to “Pomp and Circumstance.” After a welcome from the respective school’s principal, student council officers greeted their classmates at each of the ceremonies and shared some of the highlights of their last six years together.  

Before the presentation of diplomas, students were recognized with certificates for academic excellence, citizenship, President’s Awards for Educational Excellence and Educational Improvement, principal’s awards, most improved awards, ELA/Math awards and the Joseph Ferriso Memorial Award. 

As each student was called to the stage for acknowledgment, the fifth-grade teachers and principals facilitated the presentation of diplomas. Students also showed off their musical talents by performing a variety of selections, including their elementary class songs for the final performance.
