GH Moving Up Car Parade!

Congratulations Glen Head Class of 2020! PHOTOS BELOW
On Thursday, June 4, 2020, Principal Dr. Peter Rufa along with Superintendent Dr. Peter Giarrizzo, and the GH fifth grade teachers, faculty, and staff cheered on the Glen Head Class of 2020 during their Moving Up Car Parade Ceremony.

It was a beautiful day to celebrate the Glen Head fifth graders and their respective families as Principal Rufa handed each student their diploma through their decorative car windows! The school was adorned with Hawaiian decorations and administrators, faculty and staff were colorfully dressed accordingly! Leading off each class was the Glenwood Landing Fire Department followed by each family vehicle. We thank everyone for participating in making this celebration a success.

Principal Rufa said, “Our 5th grade moving up was such a special event. It was truly touching to be TOGETHER cheering for our 5th grade class and wishing them well as they move on to the middle school. Yesterday was the perfect reminder of what makes Glen Head so special; it our students, our families, and our faculty all interacting TOGETHER!”
