Eighth-graders throughout the district celebrated their transition to the high school with family, friends, faculty members and administrators on June 20 and 21 at Northport High School. East Northport Middle School held their ceremony on the evening of June 20, while Northport Middle School had their celebration on June 21.

During both ceremonies, the graduates entered the packed auditorium to “Pomp and Circumstance,” as proud family members looked on. After being seated, one student led the room in the Pledge of Allegiance. East Northport Middle School eighth-grader Alison Crosley performed the National Anthem, while Northport Middle School had their choraliers perform the “Star Spangled Banner” and “Over the Rainbow.”

The performances followed by East Northport Middle School principal Pasquale DeStefano and Northport Middle School assistant principal Dr. Chelsea Brown commending the eighth-graders on their years as middle schoolers. Several graduates of East Northport Middle School received special awards during the ceremony for their community service, outstanding grades and determination.

Northport Middle School students Sean Ryan, Alyssa Infranco and Isabella Anton reflected on their middle school experiences and shared their favorite memories as they move onto the high school.

Each student walked across the stage and received a certificate of completion as their names were proudly announced. East Northport Middle School’s President of the National Junior Honor Society Megan DellaMarco and Northport Middle School Principal Timothy Hoss concluded the ceremonies, wishing the graduates all the best as they move onto their next academic journey – high school.
