Levittown’s elementary school students celebrated their successes during their primary years of education and now look forward to entering a future of new academic experiences at Jonas E. Salk and Wisdom Lane middle schools.
As part of the district’s moving up tradition, the faculty and staff at Abbey Lane, East Broadway, Gardiners Avenue, Lee Road, Northside and Summit Lane elementary schools recognized the students with awards and celebratory speeches during their respective ceremonies.
Each of the principals and honored guests dispensed words of wisdom. Lee Road Principal Anthony Goss told his students that he is confident that their elementary school education has prepared them for middle school. He also urged them to “work hard to develop a positive attitude” and “learn that all problems have solutions.” Abbey Lane Principal Dr. George Maurer’s advice to the students was not to be “defined by what others tell you to be.”
After the ceremonial speeches, choral selections, recognitions and special readings, the students were presented one by one with their certificates of completion to the applause of parents and family. They then joined their families for refreshments and said goodbye to classmates for the summer recess.
