Congratulations, Graduates, on a Job Well Done!

June 25, 2019 / SCO News

congratulations to class of 2019 Graduations, from Pre-K to high school, took place at programs throughout SCO this month.

The Class of 2019 received their Regents diplomas at our three transfer high schools for over age, under-credited students: Bronx Arena High School, East Brooklyn Community High School and North Queens Community High School.

Youth in our Foster Care program were recognized for graduating high school at a special celebratory dinner.

Our Westbrook Preparatory School for teens with high functioning Autism and Madonna Heights School for young women held ceremonies for graduating seniors as well.

Theresa Paplin School in Queens and The Christopher School in the Bronx – residential schools for youth with developmental and behavioral challenges – recognized their students’ accomplishments and celebrated graduating youth who will be moving on to residential living for adults.

The Tyree Learning Center for children with developmental disabilities celebrated the progress of each student in a Moving Up ceremony.

Students at our five Early Childhood Education Centers: Shirley Chisholm, Morris Koppelman and FirstStepNYC (Brooklyn) and Jerome Hardeman and Corona UPK (Queens) proudly received Pre-K certificates at Moving On ceremonies as they look forward to beginning Kindergarten in the fall.

Congratulations to one and all!
