Fitzhugh 6th graders advance to OMS

Life skills and lessons learned at Fitzhugh Park Elementary School are tools for the outgoing sixth-graders to continue to be leaders as they enter the Oswego Middle School in the fall.
Fitzhugh Principal Donna Simmons implored the sixth-graders to move up from elementary to middle school with the Leader in Me principles and the 7 Habits learned throughout their time at Fitzhugh. Her heartfelt remarks provided reflection on the application of each habit and how to utilize them moving forward. Putting those lessons into practice of everyday life is the ultimate goal, she said.
“You are capable,” she told the future Oswego High School Class of 2024. “Make your education the best it can be.”
The recent sixth-grade promotion ceremony welcomed the musical talents of sixth-grade chorus members before a couple of students offered their fondest memories at FPS, including making friends, having supportive teachers and both meeting and exceeding personal goals.
“I’m really, really going to miss this place,” said Ben Norton. “This is the best school ever; I will miss you all so much.”
Several special awards were distributed to students who maintained excellence in writing, good character, leadership performance and academic excellence. Principal Simmons then joined teachers Joshua Lerch and Lisa Wells in the presentation of certificates of completion, which signified the end of their educational time at FPS. After a round of thunderous applause, the graduates joined their family members, friends and teachers for cupcakes and juice.
Similar events were also held at the remaining Oswego City School District elementary buildings: Charles E. Riley, Frederick Leighton, Minetto and Kingsford Park schools.
