Northport K-8 kindergartners, fifth, and eighth grade students are celebrating their accomplishments with “Moving Up” ceremonies, dances, picnics and parties. Parents and grandparents, as well as teachers and administrators, are proud of the students’ progress at Northport. Kindergartneners celebrated with classroom ceremonies, fifth graders will host a formal celebration, and eighth graders will celebrate with a formal ceremony in the evening with a host of Veteran partners serving as flag bearers for an honor color guard to kick off the ceremony. Students will also honor Sgt. Ray Carter of the United States Army, who participated in the D-Day Invasion of Normandy Beach and Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. This year is the 69th anniversary of D-Day. At Northport, we celebrate students and honor our United States military. Pictured is fifth grader Danarius Yearby from Nichole Robinson’s class. Some of the highlights of his year, Darius remarked, were his awesome teachers, friends, trip to Oxbow Eco-Center, Northport Field Day and science project.
