We were thrilled to host our second Moving Up Celebration with our students and families: second year, two cohorts (6th and 7th grade), and 42 families! These students will be welcomed next fall as 7th and 8th graders. This was a great opportunity to remind our students and families of the incredible talent and potential that they have, and about their endless possibilities. This was also a great opportunity to thank and celebrate with our partners, supporters, staff, and volunteers who make all the magic happen!

Special thanks to Double Tree by Hilton Schenectady for making our event at such beautiful and ideal location possible, and for all the effort to make this a very special event for all the students, families, partners and volunteers. We are also grateful for the beautiful and delicious celebration cakes by Villa Italia Bakery and Market 32 @ Mohawk Commons. Also thanks to Camelot Print for the elegant backdrop and roller up that made for a great statement of pride for our kids, and a great background for our families and friends to take pictures against, capturing special memories.

We look forward to seeing our students back in the fall. Have a lovely summer!!!
