Eighth Graders "Moving Up" Celebration

8th Grade Moving Up Celebration 2022

On June 8, thirty-eight Harvey eighth graders graduated from Harvey Middle School and embarked on a new journey, officially becoming "rising ninth graders" at the Middle School Moving Up Celebration held in the Fenstermacher Athletic Center. It was a wonderful celebration of their achievements this year, culminating in awards and diplomas for the Class of 2026.

Head of Middle School Dr. Brendan Byrne told the students to "continue to find and embrace your strengths as you move on to high school." In the words of poet Maya Angelou, he quoted "Your mission is not merely to survive, but to thrive, and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style."

Faculty speaker, music teacher Zachary Wright, spoke about witnessing "countless students bravely trying things they may have been unsure of." He recalled how during their time in Middle School, this class "developed new skills, discovered new passions, and formed friendships." Mr. Wright challenged them to continue to try new things that might be a bit out of their comfort zone. "Do not miss an opportunity to learn, to grow, and to continue discovering the person you are becoming," he said.

The Middle School Chorus capped off the celebration singing "The Secret of Happiness" by Paul Gordon, accompanied on piano by Mr. Wright.

Congratulations to the Harvey eighth grade class of 2022!
