The graduating fifth graders of Donald P. Sutherland Elementary School are sure to remember the school on the hill. After all the lessons, assemblies and events over the years, the students received their certificates of promotion on Wednesday at their Moving Up Ceremony.

The students were seated in the front, wearing mortar board hats with gold tassels hanging from them, and supported by their families in attendance.

Principal Jack Alvey led the ceremony, and along with fifth grade teachers Mrs. Jennifer Adams and Mrs. Susan D’Amico, offered advice to the graduating class.

“Make memories,” Mr. Alvey said. “Enjoy being kids, because it goes fast.”

Mr. Alvey also encouraged the students to take what they learned from the Character Education program and use that as they move on to middle school and beyond.

“We’ve tried here at DPS to instill character traits to help you be good people. Those are things that’ll help you through life,” he said. “I wish you nothing but the best of luck in sixth grade.”

Congratulations to the graduates!
