The 5th Grade Moving Up ceremony was not the last tribute to our fifth graders for a job well done during their years at Otisville Elementary. 

Three days later, as part of a PBIS celebration, our graduates faced off against faculty—in an intense game of kickball. 

This festive send off started with a school-wide rally celebrating our year of learning.  Students said the pledge, sang "Happy Birthday" to all our summer birthdays and honored all the students that had perfect attendance all year.

Fifth graders, Sarah Winner, Caitlin Anton, Gavin Morse, Alexandra Godlewski, Ashlynn Kumar, Sienna Munsch, Molly Guifre and Natalie Deoragh spoke about the 3 R's :  RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY and READY TO LEARN and reflected on our school theme of "10 Years and Still a Perfect Fit."  

Sarah told the school about when she entered Otisville in first grade.  "I was so scared but I soon made good friends."  Sienna reflected on what qualities students need to be Ready to Learn.  She told the crowd,  "be curious, look for new things to learn everyday and always be a good listener."  

The rally closed with the 5th Graders walking behind the banner of "class of 2025" and all our K - 4th grade students wishing them a strong start at the Middle School and much success in their future endeavors.

OTISVILLE'S FIFTH GRADE MOVE-UP CEREMONY

Posted June 21 at 12:16pm

Otisville's four 5th grade classes celebrated their Moving Up to the middle school in the school’s gym on June 18.  Cheering for their growth and accomplishments were family members, faculty, staff, and school and district administrators.


School Principal Vincent Biele offered words of praise and appreciation for the 2018 graduating students. The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Kameryn Lyons and Nicolas Grusz. Audrey Guido, Kiwanis K-Kids president, delivered the farewell speech on behalf of her graduating class.  She thanked the teachers, administrators and parents for all of their support over the past six years.  She reflected on all the chorus and band concerts and the drama productions that the students were a part of during the year, and she closed her speech by quoting Harry Potter, "Working hard is important.  But there is something that matters more - Believing in yourself." 

Teachers Mrs. Graziano, Mrs. Hagerty, Mrs. Louey, Mrs. Mynders, and Mrs. Frawley introduced each of their students, and Mr. Biele and Mrs. Downey presented moving-up certificates.


A multi-media presentation put together by Mrs. Fenfert was a real crowd-pleaser. It featured a year's worth of picture-perfect moments. The ceremony culminated with the four classes singing together—"Count on Me" by Bruno Mars” and "What Makes you Otisville" with words arranged by Mrs. Fenfert.


CONGRATULATIONS Otisville 5th Graders! We wish you a great new adventure at Minisink Valley Middle School.

OTISVILLE CELEBRATES FLAG AND FIELD DAYS

Posted June 18 at 12:51pm

A forecast of rain moved all field day activities indoors for grades 3-5, on Wednesday, June 13. All but the dunk tank, of course. Nevertheless, spirits were anything but dampened. Circling in and out of the school’s gyms, lobby, library, stage and music rooms, students seized on more than ten heart-pumping games and activities, music and dancing, and packed a memorable day, full of fun and friendship.

Early in the morning on June 14, the school gathered around the flagpole to celebrate National Flag Day with patriotic songs led by Mrs. Hughes. From there, grades K-2 took to the fields for their own field day, in the sun. 

Special thanks to PE teachers, Mr. Uhrig and Mrs. Giufre; the PTO; and faculty, parent, and high school student volunteers.
