Proudly dressed in their green graduation gowns, eighth graders from Locust Valley Middle School prepared to close the chapter on their middle school careers and open a new one at the high school. The moving up ceremony was held on Locust Valley Middle School/High School’s new turf field on June 21.

Central and building administrators, board members, staff and loved ones were present for the milestone occasion which consisted of eighth grade graduates reflecting on their time in middle school and hopes for the future, along with words of advice and encouragement from Principal H. Thomas Hogan, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth Graham and Board President Brian Nolan.

“We are thrilled to be part of your journey, and to continue watching you grow and explore new things – new friendships, new topics of interest, new places, and so much more,” Mr. Nolan said. “Know that we are here to support and celebrate you for many years to come.”

Dr. Graham expressed how proud he was of the students and assured them that they have much to look forward to on this new chapter.

“Locust Valley High School is full of opportunities,” he said. “As high schoolers, you will have access to extracurricular activities and a world class curriculum that includes courses to prepare you for college or a career beyond Locust Valley High School.”

Each student was announced at the podium where they received a handshake and certificate from Mr. Hogan. Family and friends cheered in the stands for their graduate.

Following the presentation of certificates, the Locust Valley Middle School Select Chorus, led by Brianna Brickman, performed “The Defining Moment.”
With the help of the Locust Valley Middle School band, directed by Vincent Guerra and accompanied by Lisa Conti, the Class of 2022 exited the ceremony ready to celebrate the next step in their academic journeys.

Congratulations to our eighth grade graduates!

Sixth graders from Locust Valley Middle School in Laura Vera’s and Heather DeGregorio’s health class recently participated in a farm to table lesson in the Locust Valley High School and Locust Valley Middle School gardens. Tina Hamet, life skills teacher and garden club adviser from Locust Valley High School, co-taught the lesson with her high school life skills students and members of the garden club.

The sixth grade students learned about eating locally and seasonally. They toured the garden, explored composting and tasted herbs, fruits and vegetables that are grown in the garden. In addition, the students planted a vegetable seed that they were able to take home with them. The lesson was a great way to expand student knowledge about the benefits of healthy eating and gardening.

Locust Valley Middle School hosted Students Holding Certificates thumbnail217641

Locust Valley Middle School hosted its annual science fair on May 18 in the Locust Valley High School and Middle School Mini Theater. Five science projects from 10 budding scientists in grades 6-8 were on display. The students were prepared to impress the judges with their posterboards and research, in the hopes of being named a winner.

The event was co-sponsored and organized by the Locust Valley Middle School Parents’ Council in collaboration with the Locust Valley High School Science Research Department. Seniors in the science research program served as judges for the evening, along with science research coordinator Louis DeRose. They visited each booth and ranked the projects following a specific criterion. Aside from the project and its data, the judges also rated each student’s presentation skills. The middle school students explained their process to the judges and answered any questions that they had.

During the event, members of the Locust Valley high school and middle school robotics team, Team Kuiper, showcased the robotics club and encouraged students to join. They enjoyed displaying their robots and showing others how they worked.

Following the judging, families were invited to view the science projects and awards were presented to the top three winners. Congratulations to the following award recipients:

First Place
Eighth graders Justin Kwok, Marcus Martinez and Rowan Shenoy: “Effect of Shroud Lengths on Impact Velocity of a Parachute”
