Recognition and Promotions

The end of May is normally busy time - end of school activities, two birthdays and the ongoing sports and music activities.

This year, we added in two ceremonies - one for our 5th grader moving on to middle school and one for our 8th grader moving on to *gulp* high school.

I just remember not too long ago, they were both toddlers. Where has the time gone?

The schools are careful not to call these ceremonies "graduations", because really, that is reserved for the end of high school and college (and I agree). But the ceremonies add a nice touch as the kids leave their previous schools for bigger ones.

For the 5th graders, they all received a certificate of recognition. Brian also received two special awards - one for his Curiosity and Creativity, and the other a President's Education Award for Academic Achievement.
Brian with his 5th grade teacher, Ms J:
Teacher and Student
I couldn't get him to take off those silly glasses!

For the 8th graders, we had a more formal affair - the girls bought special dresses and really looked nice.
The Four
These four girls have been friends all through middle school.

Since the girls almost never wear dresses (The last time was in 5th grade?), I took the opportunity for some additional photos. It took some additional coercion, but having multiple family members and friends around helps.

Congrats to all the 5th and 8th grader as they move on to new schools!
