Mayor Nancy R. Rossi attended outdoor promotion ceremonies last week at Savin Rock Community School, Bailey Middle School and Carrigan Intermediate School.
On June 8, Rossi congratulated Savin Rock fourth graders of teacher Kerry McQueeney’s class on their promotion during a ceremony in the school parking lot.
Most of the school’s 87 fourth graders will attend Carrigan for grades five and six in late August, said Savin Rock Principal Taryn Driend, who led the ceremony with McQueeney.
On June 9, Rossi spoke at Bailey and congratulated the school’s Team 9 eighth graders on their promotion to high school at a socially distanced ceremony behind the school gym.
Rossi applauded students’ families and teachers for their guidance and support and helped Principal Robert Bohan present students with certificates of promotion. They were joined onstage by Assistant Principals Paul Giglietti and Stacy Sutton and Colette Bennett, who coordinates English language arts, social studies and library media studies for the school district.
Most of the Eagles’ 473 eighth graders, a class shaped by the coronavirus pandemic, will attend West Haven High School in late August.
On Friday, Rossi congratulated Carrigan sixth graders from the classes of teachers Beau Kamykowski and Tracy Stratton on their promotion to Bailey during a ceremony in the school parking lot.
Rossi also wished Haley Elementary School fourth graders well at an outdoor promotion ceremony Tuesday.
