On Wednesday, May 31st Abby had her 5th Grade recognition ceremony. Admittedly I was not looking forward to this event and really neither was Abby. She has had such an amazing experience at Paramount Elementary and we were both really sad to see it coming to an end.
There were lots of parents and grandparents there to welcome all the 5th graders as they marched in...
Abby looked a little unsure of the whole thing. Emotions were running high for everyone!!
During the ceremony, Abby was recognized for her achievement in the County "24" Challenge, the Geography Bee, and she received the Award for Academic Excellence!!
Our wonderful principal, Mrs. Wolford will also be leaving this year so it was a very emotional ceremony for her as well.
And just like that, these amazing kids who have grown up together are now off to Middle School!!
I loved these silhouette portraits that one of the 5th grade moms did for all the graduating students.
After the ceremony, the 5th graders had a fun-filled day with lots of food, games, and activities. She came home and displayed her two award certificates. One for completing 5th Grade, the other for her achievement in Academic Excellence.
I am so proud of this girl of mine. She has worked so hard and we are incredibly grateful for the wonderful teachers and support staff who have made her Elementary years so enjoyable. It's difficult to believe that she will be in Middle School next year, but I know she will do amazing things there as well.
The future is bright Miss Abby!! We can't wait to see all that you do and become over the next few years!!
