During the Jan. 19 executive session of the Board of Education, seventh-grade students who graduated from the Bellmore School District spoke with the trustees about their experiences transitioning from Shore Road to Grand Avenue Middle School, which is part of the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District.

Board trustee Maryanne Kelly reported that the students expressed their appreciation of the academic skills and support received at each of the district’s elementary schools, making the move to middle school much easier. Trustee Janet Goller also described the discussion with the students as “insightful and complimentary.”

Board President Jay L.T. Breakstone congratulated the district’s teachers, saying that their support throughout each of the elementary school transitions made moving to the middle school easier for each student.
