Cheers and commendation rang through Woodhull School as proud parents,
friends and school staff came together to celebrate the graduation
ceremony for this year’s sixth grade class.
During the program’s
opening remarks, Principal Philip Tamberino began the ceremony
explaining that the evening would not only recognize sixth and Pre-K
graduates but also other young students whose early school years have
been affected by the pandemic. The building’s first graders, who
graduated pre-K during the lockdown, had the opportunity to walk as a
class and be cheered by those in attendance. Kindergarten students also
received a diploma, since they were not able to attend or graduate from
pre-K due to the district not offering the program under the reopening
restrictions of 2020-21. Teachers, Mr. Tamberino, PTA officers, and
members of the community took turns announcing scholarships and awards
as part of the celebration. Mr. Tamberino also took time to praise
employees who retired during the lockdown along with the current year’s
Superintendent Loretta M. Ferraro and Board of
Education President Jay Lippert were on hand to personally offer their
congratulations and assist with presenting the students with their
commemorative moving-up diplomas.
