The moving up ceremony was filled with pride, joy, and a few tears as we recognized the hard work and dedication of these incredible students. Their journey through elementary education has been nothing short of inspiring, and we are immensely proud of each and every one of them.
We would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to all the students who received special awards and recognition today. Your outstanding efforts and achievements have truly set you apart. You have shown resilience, determination, and a commitment to excellence that will undoubtedly serve you well in the future.
The ceremony was made even more special with the heartfelt speeches delivered by our students. Their words of gratitude, memories shared, and dreams for the future touched our hearts and reminded us of the incredible potential within each and every one of them.
While today was a celebration of our students, it was also a bittersweet moment for Principal Carole Kelder. This moving up ceremony marked her final one as she embarks on a well-deserved retirement at the end of this school year. Principal Kelder has been an incredible leader, mentor, and friend to all of us, and her dedication to our students' success will be cherished forever. We wish her all the happiness in this new chapter of her life!
To the future Class of 2029, we have no doubt that you will continue to shine brightly and achieve great things. Your potential is limitless, and we cannot wait to see all the amazing accomplishments you will bring to the world.
Congratulations, Class of 2027! We are immensely proud of you all!
