You’re in Middle School Now!

Jennifer Engleman
It has been so long since students have seen each other. Grade 5 students came back to school for their 5th grade promotion to middle school. The format looked different than what we are used to but was a special day to honor each student. Each class had their own ceremony. Students sat in physically distant chairs set up in the parking lot and families sat in their cars.
Each class had one student give a speech and then each student was called up one by one to receive their yearbook and promotion certificate. Each student stopped for a photo op with their certificate in hand. Families cheered and waved from their cars, set up in the parking lot like a drive-in movie. This is a unique and historic event. Students and families will be talking about this for years to come.
