With the sun shining brightly, Rocky Point Middle School eighth-grade students marched past proud parents, friends and district administrators to take their prominent seats across the back lawn of the school and signal the start of this year’s moving-up ceremony.

During the event, many students were individually recognized as they were presented with departmental awards of recognition, state honors from the Comptroller’s and Attorney General’s office as well as certificates acknowledging their outstanding character traits and community service efforts.
