5th Grade Principal's Assembly

Today the school had a "Principal's Assembly" for the 5th graders.  Basically they graduated.  The kids were filed into the All-Purpose Room in alphabetical order.  Some wore the t-shirts they received at yesterday's picnic & other's dressed up.  It was pretty casual....but no less special.

The principal gave a few speeches, as well as the teachers.  Then the kids were all called up to receive their "diplomas".  There's Marissa receiving her from her teacher.  Yes she is taller than her teacher.  She thinks it's funny.  Marissa, not the teacher. ;)


After the diplomas were handed out along with a few other special achievements, the class came up to sing a medley of songs.  The rocked the room!  From Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" to Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe", to "Party Rock Anthem", complete with shufflin'.  It was great! 

I teared up through out it all.  The years flew by fast.  It seems like yesterday they were just starting Kindergarten & now they are off to middle school!

Congratulations Marissa! 
We are so proud of you!!
