6th Grade Moves Up

June 16th was a big day for the sixth graders at Tully Elementary. Due to the unprecedented circumstances that have taken place in 2020 so far, this year’s sixth graders were celebrated in a virtual fashion, which was a bit different from the live ceremonies of the past. Students and families were invited to join a video meeting in which each student’s picture was displayed and their name announced by a teacher. In lieu of the traditional memories speeches that students gave on stage in the past, this year students were asked to record brief video clips about things they remembered from their time at TES. In addition, five students received special awards: Kodiak Ledbetter and Brooklyn Costello were awarded the Triple C Award from the NYS Attorney General’s office in recognition of their commitment, character, and courage; and Sean Mize, Molly Verbanic, and Julia Wortley were awarded the Office of the New York State Comptroller’s Achievement Award in recognition of their hard work, dedication, and success. Congratulations to all five recipients and best of luck to the graduating class of 2026!
