Guess what? Tomorrow is the last day of school! It means bye-bye elementary school, hello middle school. But, at least I have the summer to think about that middle school part. Last night was the 5th grade graduation ceremony. It wasn’t actually a graduation. The principal said that they weren’t really allowed to call it a graduation, so they used the word “promotion” instead of “graduation.” Whatever they want to call it, I don’t care. Graduate me, promote me, either way I am out of elementary school after six years (kindergarten through 5th grade)!! I got recognized for a lot of the activities that I participated in this year, like Science Olympiad, Dolphin Society (dolphins are my school’s mascot), 100-Mile Program, Ballroom Dancing, Sequoyah Book Club, Battle of the Books Competition, Track, and Honor Choir. I didn’t have perfect attendance though. Hey, some of us get sick on occasion! Stuff happens. But, the best part of all was that I got the Citizen of the Year Award for my class. The teachers picked one boy and one girl from each of the three 5th grade classes for this award and I got one!!! I got a trophy. It was AWESOME!!!! Also, I got a new dress and shoes for the ceremony, of course. You know I had to look my stylish best for such a special occasion. Check out the pictures below.
I’m “killing it” in my fancy dress!
