Hicksville Middle School Celebrates Its Graduates

Hicksville Middle School Celebrates Its Graduates
Posted on 06/17/2020

Congratulations to Hicksville High Middle School students who are moving up to the high school. The school recently conducted an outdoor ceremony to allow students to receive their middle school diplomas from Principal Mara Jorisch with their families on hand. 

The ceremony was held in a safe manner that allowed students to walk by teachers, administrators and support staff members who applauded, cheered them and offered words of encouragement and good luck. After they received their middle school diplomas, the graduating eighth graders could have their photo taken by the school sign as a memento. 

“The modified commencement was a wonderful way to recognize our amazing Hicksville Middle School Class of 2020 and to show them that they will always have a special place in our hearts,” said Jorisch

The on-site experience was complemented by a virtual ceremony that included prerecorded messages to the graduates from Superintendent of Schools Marianne Litzman, Principal Jorisch, Board of Education member Linda Imbriale, PTSA President Linda Smith, Student Council President Jack Beaudette and National Junior Honor Society President Patrick LaBarca. Assistant Principal Todd Wallace announced the eighth grade award winners. 

Each graduate also received a special HMS string bag and a commemorative copy of the ceremony program to cherish their three years of hard work at the middle school.
