Students in TSP Program Recognized During Special Ceremony

For most of the rising ninth-graders attending the SWBOCES Therapeutic Support Program at the Farragut Middle School in Hastings, the initiative has provided a safe place for them to grow and prepare for the challenges ahead.

Eleven students participated in the program’s Recognition Ceremony June 8th and were congratulated for their academic progress and for becoming “self-sufficient, productive members of society,” said Principal Alberta Grant-Johnson.

They included Amani Campbell, Kayela Carroll, Julian Fortin, Jayden Jones, Nicholas Josserand, Breanna Miranda, Tyler Riddle, Peter Rohm, Freddie Streisfeld-Leitner and Cameron Wilson.

Since joining the program, Ms. Grant-Johnson said the students have been encouraged to take ownership of their actions, including their school work. And in high school, she said, that will be particularly important.

“You have no idea how very proud I am of you,” she said to the graduates who were seated in a semi-circle at the top of the classroom, where the moving-up ceremony took place.

“You are ready to meet the expectations of high school, and I’m sure you are excited to learn new things and new ideas.”

Parents and other family members were in attendance to watch the students receive certificates for excellence in academics, leadership, and wealth of knowledge. Other awards were handed out for penmanship, the most gregarious, most inquisitive, most improved behavior, best sportsmanship, peer encouragement and much more.
