Students across Northport-East Northport Union Free School District ended the 2019-20 school year with a bang. Elementary school students from Bellerose, Dickinson, Norwood, Ocean, Fifth Avenue and Pulaski Road waved from the passenger seats of their parents’ cars during car parades and moving up ceremonies.
East Northport and Northport Middle Schools welcomed students on June 15 to celebrate eighth graders departure from middle school and transition to Northport High School. Cars were decorated with signs and words of appreciation from students as they drove past their teachers, lined up along the schools’ bus loops.
Elementary and middle school students also recently celebrated their last days of school. The “ROAR” event encouraged students to make noise outside of their homes, using pots, pans and other noise-makers, to celebrate their accomplishments.
Northport High School students also enjoyed waving to their teachers from their cars as they paraded through the school’s bus loop on May 29. Teachers held signs that read ‘We miss you,” and “Congratulations Class of 2020.”
