Finishing 5th Grade (and Elementary School)

14 June 2019

The countdown to the last days of Elementary School.  

First up Presidential Award.  The award is given to 5th graders who maintain a 3.5 GPA and above and score above a certain level on state assessment tests.  Quinn is taller than his principal Dr. Sellers.  



Next is  Field Day.    The gang is together.  




At the end of Field Day it's all about getting soaking wet!  Here they are getting sprayed by teachers and parents. 


The night before the last day of school they have their official culmination.   Each class sings a different song and then the teacher gives them some final advice.  You can see Quinn caught my eye. 


Each student walks across the stage.



Quinn and Mrs. Young.  What a fantastic way to end his 5th year of elementary school!





The last day of school.  Do you think this kid is happy?


All (or most) the 5th Graders wear their special 5th grade culmination shirts.


The final pep rally!  Hello 5th graders.  I can remember when Quinn was in 1st Grade and seeing the GIANT 5th graders in their special shirts.  Well, now we have the giant 5th grader. 


And the Lang Ranch tradition is for the kids to make a "tunnel" for the 5th graders to walk through.  It's more like a High-5 pathway. 



By the time they get to the kindergarden section, the are towering over the kids. 


The 5th Graders get a special pizza party on the last day of school.  Quinn asked everyone to sign his YearBack. 


Walking out of the gates of Lang Ranch for the last time.  Wahhhhh!


But there is more fun to come.  Some parents organized a private party at a local community center for the entire 5th grade class.  I made sure Quinn had a sporty, casual outfit.  He looks so good!


It was a Hollywood themed party with a red carpet and big Hollywood-style Lang Ranch sign for paparazzi photos.  My friend Amy created that amazing backdrop. 


And there you have it.  Our 5th grader is officially a middle schooler. 

On to summer vacation and sleeping until noon.  It's Summer Bitches!!!!
