Congratulations Glenwood Landing Class of 2020! PHOTOS BELOW

On Monday, June 1, 2020, Principal Bridget Finder along with Superintendent Dr. Peter Giarrizzo, and the GWL fifth grade teachers, faculty, and staff cheered on the Glenwood Landing Class of 2020 during their Moving Up Car Parade Ceremony.

It was a gorgeous day to celebrate the GWL fifth graders and their respective families as Principal Finder handed each student their diploma through their decorative car windows! You could hear the music and cheers as each student was joyfully recognized for this memorable accomplishment.

Principal Finder said, “Being that our fifth graders have had many of their end of year activities canceled since school is closed, it was very important to me that we create a special event that would honor each student and recognize their accomplishments. I worked collaboratively with the fifth grade parent committee to plan the moving up car parade to include decorations that were integrated with the original theme – Out of This World! The GWL School Community Association, along with the committee, provided all of the embellishments and music, which added to the festive fun.”

Congratulations to the following fifth graders Abigail Monte, Aidan Aquino, Ammar Imran, Anastasia Alikakos, Anthony Cimino, Brett Cowan, Constantina Tsirakidis, Damon Datlo, Daniel Healy, Henry Andreana III, Jack Begley, James Clancy, Jordan Brustien, Luke Cardinale, Madison DeMeo, Nora DeNicola, Olivia Kenny, Alexa Scaffa, Anna Fuiaxis, Catherine Papiro, Charlotte Healy, Collin Fales, James Colbert, Joseph Lizza, Kai Oakley, Lauren Uribe, Marco Gasparri, Mariah Marrone, Mary Pinto, Nylise Rosario, Paolo Wang, Penelope Batas, Peter Frangopoulos, Samuel Galowski, Zahrah Chin, Augustus Ha, Brandon Hsieh, Cecilia Reilly, Deniz Ucku, Emili Cedeno Rivera, Jack Arena, Jade Feuerborn, Jonah Aloni, Juliet Monte, Lana Gasparri, Lila Archer, Madelynn Freeman, Matthew Bambino, Nathan Rivera, Rachel Torres, Robert Gilman, Victoria Vasquez, Cagney Camarano, Caiden Freeman, Nicholas Manolakis, Asa Bergman, Brynn Paulinski, Claire Gochna, Claudia Bavaro, Dylan Merazzi, George Fegos, George Kenniff, Hailey Colbert, Jack Correa, Jack Penney, Katina Pappas, Konstantinos Kosmidis, Lila Frame, Lucy Burke, Lyla Esposito, Maddelyn Ford, Ryder Sheldon, and Vincenzo DiGiuseppe.

Many thanks to Principal Finder, the Fifth Grade Graduation Committee, GWL SCA, faculty and parents for making this celebration a success!  The campus was beautifully decorated with numerous festive signs including “Congrats 5th Graders!,” an archway of maroon and white balloons, and congratulatory lawn signs of all the pictures of the graduates.

We wish you all the best of luck as you move up to North Shore Middle School and are eager to see you soon and hear of your many successes!
