Our Little “Graduate”!

Not from high school, of course, but from middle school! She graduated with high honors, and we are so proud of her!

On her last day, I greeted her with graduation streamers on the front door—she was so excited!


I adore the dress, shoes, shoes, and hairstyle she chose for the big event:




She was chosen to be a name reader, which was fun—though she had some tough names!


And because she was the first name reader, it worked out that she was the very last kid to receive her diploma!



The excited grads!



And then it was time for photos:


A selection of friends; some she has been in school with since kindergarten!


And a couple of her favorite teachers:


And some dear friends who came to cheer on the graduates:


And then back home to “dress down” a bit for their 8th Grade dance—not a fancy occasion, but FUN! The theme this year was Hollywood, and the kids had a blast!


Her time at middle school was absolutely wonderful, and we will miss it. But we can’t wait to see what high school has in store for her!

    Congratulations Em!

    I has been a pleasure to teach you two years ago, but more importantly, I am lucky to have a friend like you, Jessica, and Tom. Although I will miss seeing you on campus everyday, I do wish you the best of luck in your pursuit toward your next accomplishment, High School graduation. I am sure you will approach your studies with aggressiveness. Yes, there will be anxiety but you will continue to grow as a student and how you handle the pressure. I am confident that you will do well and that that you will handle the anxiety with grace and dignity. Thank you for being a great student. Sixth grade was fun. Softball was very positive experience and I do hope you wear your sweatshirt with pride. Thank you for letting me teach you a volleyball. Thank you for “pushing” the button for the morning announcements. Thank you for going to the Stanford Football game with me and your parents. The game was good but going on the field after a excellent finish was GREAT!!! Thank you for relying on my when you needed someone to help you. I was glad to do it.

    Thank you.


    Thank you for allowing me to become apart of your life. May your family and mine continue to grow as friends.

    Have an Amazing yet Restful Summer and Good Luck in High School. Thank you for the positive memories.ReplyCancel
