The high school's Class of 2024 inched one step closer to its graduation in moving up ceremonies throughout the district’s five elementary schools. With their parents and loved ones in attendance, each school hosted a special program to commemorate students’ completion of elementary school with certificates and awards during the final week of school. As they prepare to continue their academic journeys at the middle school, students were encouraged to continue following their dreams and working hard to achieve success.

Superintendent of Schools Glen Eschbach offered words of advice to the students. “What is worth learning is worth working hard for,” said Eschbach at Belmont's moving up ceremony. “Don’t let frustration get the best of you; persevere! Ask for help and keep trying; the payoff will be great. Be humble about your accomplishments and be quick to compliment others on theirs. [Most importantly], smile. Maintaining a positive attitude will go a long way. You’ll be amazed at how the world looks, and how the world looks at you when you have a smile on your face.”

The beautiful ceremonies were a way to celebrate students’ success and a precursor to the next chapter of their lives.
