The event is open to the public and will collect canned or non-perishable goods at the door for donation to the local Human Concerns Center and Salvation Army.

Participating in the event will be Bishop’s Commons resident, retired superintendent of Fulton Schools, Glenn Clark and resident Ellen Ridgway, a retired quality assurance supervisor from Birdseye.

Both residents will be quizzed on math, science, English and social studies with the help of the sixth grade students if they get stumped on a question.

Riley School; Connor Joyce, Fredrick Leighton School; Laurin Furlong, Trinity Catholic School; Shane Saunders, Kingsford Park; Leah Mullen, Minetto Elementary; and Zach Cary, Kingsford Park.

Trinity Catholic School’s Sixth Graders Move On

Gabriella Lanza heads back to her seat after receiving her diploma from Principal David Friedlander.

The ceremony marked a stop along one part of the 12 students’ journey, but was also the starting point to the next part of their journey – middle schools in Oswego and other parts of the county.

Though the students were sad to be leaving their friends and the teachers they have come to know over the past several years they are also excited about the opportunities that lie before them in middle school.

For some it was the last time they would see each other as classmates.

They will do well because they have been more than adequately prepared at Trinity Catholic to continue their educational careers, according to Principal David Friedlander.

Friedlander praised the students. They had demonstrated poise, discipline and strength, he said.

They achieved a great deal at Trinity Catholic and for that, they should be proud, he said. The bonds of friendship they formed at the school will be with them for the rest of their lives, he noted.

“I am confident you will all become successful adults and make an important impact in tomorrow’s world,” he said. “Trinity Catholic will always be a home for you. Make the most of every opportunity.”

The principal spoke of the bittersweet feelings he was having over saying goodbye to the students, some of whom he had known since they were in kindergarten, others for a shorter time. Their time at Trinity not only gave them a good education, but also strong spiritual strength and high moral values, he added.

“Never forget how much your parents love you and the personal sacrifices that they’ve made for you,” he said. “Never forget, you will always be a part of Trinity Catholic School. And Trinity Catholic School will always be a part of you.”

He offered some words of wisdom for their futures. There was a chicken farmer who once had a strange looking chicken, but it acted like the other chickens, he said.

That’s no chicken, that’s an eagle, someone told the farmer. The man asked for the ‘chicken’ and the farmer gave it to him.

The man took the bird to the mountain and turned it toward the sunrise. “Eagle, fly,” he told it.

The strange looking chicken spread its wings and soared and soared and soared, Friedlander told the graduates.

“You become what you believe you can be. So, if you ever dream of becoming an eagle, follow your dreams and not the words of a chicken,” he said.

Oben recalled special memories about the class members.

Several members of the class received citizenship awards, outstanding academic achievement awards and other citations.

Sixth grade teacher Rebecca Flack helped Friedlander present the diplomas and awards.

Special awards were presented including:

The Triple C Award, recognizing character, courage and commitment, was given to Flack and Alcasid.

Presidential Education Award, which is awarded to students who have an overall average for two years of 90 – 100% and have scored a three or four on the New York State Test in English Language Arts and Math, was presented to: Alcasid, Donovan, Lanza, Magsino, Annal, Flack, Danilo Madlangbayan, Moran, and Porcari.

Cited for citizenship were Donovan, Bornheimer, Lanza and Porcari.
