Today we attended 5th Grade Night at Roundstone Elementary School. Our grandson, Brandon, is ‘movin on up’ to middle school and a different school several miles away from his present school.
All the 5th graders made a memory board of their elementary school years, which they each proudly displayed. All the parents went around and looked at all the memory boards of all the students. Also with their memory boards they each had written an essay of their worst injury…and don’t ask me why this was chosen as the topic, because I don’t know. I read several of their stories and they were VERY funny and well written…even though they were about injuries.
Here is a picture of Brandon sitting in front of his memory board.
The 5th graders later all assembled in the middle of the floor and sang a song for us, “The futures looking good to me and I’m ready to go…” which they performed very nicely. Following the song they each received a T-shirt (pictured above) with all of their signatures within the 2006, as a memento from the school, as well as from each of their classmates.
On their way out, Brandon and his best friend Matthew really cut loose and, were acting silly. There is no school tomorrow because it’s election day and then only 2 ½ days of school till summer vacation. I might add that both of the boys are really looking forward to going to their new middle school in the fall.
This summer they are looking forward to football practice, camping, activities with the Boy Scouts and summer camp.
Mama Bear's battery malfunctioned...it just plain died, so she will be posting more pictures of Baby Bears big night sometime later this week, on her site...The Four Bears in the Woods.
