Long Beach Middle School’s eighth grade graduates celebrated their advancement to high school with a Moving-Up Ceremony, held on June 21 on Veteran’s Field. The students have experienced an educational program based on philosophies that serve as guiding principles throughout life.

Following the Pledge of Allegiance, students performed the song “We Won’t Stop Dreaming,” which was followed by inspiring remarks from Board of Education President Dennis Ryan and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jennifer Gallagher.

Principal Lorie Beard facilitated the event and addressed the graduates.

“You have a lot to be proud of,” Ms. Beard said. “You arrived at the middle school as sixth graders facing a whole new environment and have grown tremendously over the last three years. Everything you do, everything you say and every choice you make are opportunities to bring joy and goodness to yourself, others and to the world.”

Halfway through the presentation of diplomas and special awards, Student Organization President Aneisa Nicholas shared reflections on behalf of her peers. As the evening concluded, Long Beach High School Principal Jeffrey Myers welcomed the incoming freshmen to the exciting chapter ahead.
