Moving Up to the Next Level

Students in fifth and eighth grades celebrated milestones as they were promoted to the next stage of their education.

At Bayville Intermediate School and Locust Valley Intermediate School, students sang songs and listened to speakers commend them on their accomplishments and offer advice for a successful transition to middle school. 

Locust Valley Middle School eighth graders took to the stage in green graduation robes, reminisced about the three years they spent at the school and accepted their moving-up certificates with pride. Members of the chorus performed “This Is Me” from “The Greatest Showman.”

Board of Education members and administrators celebrated with students and families at each of the moving-up ceremonies.

The slideshows below includes highlights of each ceremony.

The Board of Education granted tenure to eight faculty members on June 6. These individuals were recognized at a reception during which administrators described how each of them had proven that they were making a difference in the Locust Valley Central District. 

Each tenure recipient spent years proving that they are worthy of becoming a permanent part of the LVCSD family. Their supervisors observed their professional practices over the years, ensuring that they performed their jobs in a manner that was considered superior. Their skills, relationships with others and willingness to learn were all factors that were considered when reviewing each candidate for their tenure appointment.

Acting Superintendent Dr. Carl Bonuso congratulated the honorees on this important milestone in their careers.

Congratulations to Jamie Cherkis, Locust Valley Middle School/High School Mathematics Teacher; Kimberly Derenthal, Ann MacArthur Primary School Teacher; Jaime DiRossi, Locust Valley Middle School/High School Science Teacher; Kristin Hordy, Locust Valley Elementary Schools Physical Education Teacher; Brian Kollar, Locust Valley Middle School Science Teacher; Toni Meliambro, Locust Valley Central School District Assistant Superintendent for Business Affairs and Human Resources; Alexander Moir, Locust Valley High School Foreign Language Teacher; and Michelle Villa, Locust Valley High School Assistant Principal.
