Congratulations GWL Fifth Graders on Moving Up to the Middle School!

On Monday, June 19th, Principal Bridget Finder led a very memorable Moving Up Ceremony for all of her Glenwood Landing fifth graders. The theatre was filled with adoring family, friends and teachers who all applauded happily, as their children reminisced about their favorite memories in a more personal and creative manner to everyone’s enjoyment. Students also individually received their diplomas on stage from Principal Finder and sang beautiful songs under the direction of LiJu Cheung. 

Superintendent Dr. Edward Melnick spoke to the fifth graders for the final time since he is retiring this June 2017. He mentioned that he was once the Principal at GWL! Additionally, Principal Dr. Marc Ferris introduced Mr. Robert Dennis to his incoming sixth graders, as he will be the new principal at North Shore Middle School.
