GS Celebrates Treasured Tradition: Moving Up Day
Ruth Kornblatt-Stier

On the last day of school, the Grammar School joined together to celebrate one of CGPS’ most important traditions: Moving Up Day. The event began with a special acknowledgment of the beloved GS faculty and staff leaving the community this year. The students who will not be returning next fall also received a special recognition. PK then launched into an original Moving Up Day Song, singing, “Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, look at PK!” Next, the remaining grades each got a chance to sing their own unique Moving Up Day song. After the fourth graders sang about how much they will miss everyone, the GS orchestra topped off the musical portion of the event with a moving and fantastic performance. There was then a series of ceremonial moments, filled with music and confetti, when each class officially moved up to the next grade. This portion featured both the remote students as well as a livestream of in-person students joyously celebrating in their classrooms. Have a wonderful and well-deserved summer, GS!
