Proud South Middle School eighth-graders and their parents came together on graduation night to mark the end of one more memorable chapter in their lives.

The eighth-grade chorus opened the program with touching renditions of “The Star-Spangled Banner” followed by “Flashlight.” Principal Caryn Blum congratulated the graduates and reminisced about the three years they shared together. Student speakers Kathryn Postiglione and Ashley Roth spoke about their years at South and looked ahead to the next chapter of their lives. One of the most touching moments of the evening was the presentation of the Zachary Bernstein Memorial Scholarship to Grace Collins.

Then, the students rose one by one to receive their certificates of promotion, marking the successful completion of middle school.
