Held in the school’s colorfully decorated gymnasium, family, friends and invited guests recently attended John Pearl Elementary School’s moving up day celebration, as the students begin to look forward to their middle school careers at Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School.

Students were introduced and presented with certificates representing the successful completion of their elementary school requirements, along with a number of special awards as well. Each student also continued a unique tradition where they addressed the audience and talked about their future plans, along with their confidence in achieving those goals. 

John Pearl Elementary School Principal Susan White took to the microphone to congratulate the students and their proud family members, while celebrating their hard work and accomplishments along the way.

On this special day, the pride of the assembled members of the students’ families and friends was evident in the recognition of what the young students had accomplished thus far. Members of the school’s PTA, teaching staff, and the attending family and friends joined Ms. White in congratulating the students, and wished them all a happy and safe summer vacation.

Students enrolled in Sarah Mannino’s first grade class at John Pearl Elementary School recently watched the development of baby chicks, right from the comfort of the classroom setting. In the middle of May, one dozen eggs were delivered to the classroom. The eggs were then carefully placed into an incubator, as students learned about the 21-day incubation period, along with the parts of the embryo and egg shell as well. In an exciting turn of events, six baby chicks hatched on the 21st day, as the students were amazed to watch the chicks grow and play.
