At Pulaski Street Elementary School, students celebrated with the annual Moving Up Day Ceremony.
And it wasn’t just students moving to new grades and schools in Riverhead. Roanoke Avenue Elementary School principal Debra Rodgers will be moving to Phillips Avenue Elementary to take the reins as principal Assistant principal Thomas Payton will be replacing her at Roanoke Avenue.
