Tonight we celebrated the end of an era and a new beginning. Rachel’s 5th grade graduation ceremony was held tonight, marking the end of her elementary school days and ushering in middle school. Wow, I can’t believe my little girl has grown up so fast!
The ceremony was very nice. Each 5th grade teacher read their students’ names and the kids walked across the stage to receive their certificates. Rachel looked absolutely beautiful, in my opinion, as you can see in the photos below. The ceremony ended with a slide show of various pics taken of the 5th grade classes throughout the school year.
This is something new for me. When I was in school the only graduation ceremony we had was when we completed high school. I think it’s great that schools do these celebrations now, especially for 5th grade. It truly is the end of one era and the beginning of a whole new experience.
Congratulations Rachel!!!!! I’m very proud of you!!!!
