The last day of school came. I got to sneak a peek at the secondary awards since my classroom is right next to the atrium, where we have our ceremonies. Here's Twinkle Toes getting her Honor Roll certificate.
Our sweet Turkish teacher chose Firstborn for the Turkish 1 award.
And Firstborn was always nominated and chosen by her teachers for the 9th and 10th grade character award. We were so proud of her. She has shown good character.
After secondary came elementary awards. Big Ben's class recited an A to Z poem.
Miss Middler took an Honor Roll certificate, too. She only made 1 B all year. I wasn't nearly as concerned about my grades in 6th grade as she is.
I awarded Honor Roll to my class. Sweet Cheeks worked hard this year and got all A's.
And then when it was all said and done, the inevitable goodbyes came. Miss Middler will miss this sweet Egyptian friend.
We had some teachers to say goodbye to, also.
It's a day we anticipate and dread. It's so good to complete a year, but it means hugging the necks of people we may never see again. We are thankful for such good friends, and our prayers go with them.
