Round Hill fifth-grade students honored in Moving Up ceremony

Round Hill Elementary School celebrated its fifth-grade class with an intimate moving-up ceremony on Thursday night, recognizing the significant accomplishments of all the students. 

The ceremony began with the presentation of Colors by the Washingtonville High School JROTC, followed by the reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance. 

After opening words from Ellen Mumladze, the student council president, principal Kristin Shaw shared a few inspiring words with students along with some advice for their upcoming middle school journey. 

“As you move forward towards the next step in your journey, here are my hopes for you all,” Mrs. Shaw said. “Never lose your love and support for one another. Always celebrate one another’s talents and achievements, both big and small, and always lift each other up during moments of struggle. Remember your roots at Round Hill and lessons we have tried to model for you each and everyday. Be a good example to your peers and act as the true leaders you are, wherever you go.”

Select students were also given special awards for their outstanding achievements in different areas, including academics and community service. 

Families, staff, parents, and faculty celebrated each of the fifth-grade students as they crossed the stage to accept their certificates signifying their accomplishment of the fifth-grade year.

To close the ceremony, the fifth-grade students sang, “A Sky Full of Stars” by Coldplay.
