Mikayla, Kirsten, and Ben's school had a year end ceremony on Friday May 23.
It was a very nice ceremony honoring parent volunteers, teachers that are leaving, and 8th grade graduates.
Flags from all the countries represented at the school were marched in by the 6th and 7th grades; then the elementary kids sang the Philippine National Anthem.
The kindergarten class sang a praise song they have been learning and the middle school 6th and 7th graders sang a couple very nice songs that sounded great.
Then the 8th graders were given certificates of moving up into high school. Each of the 8th graders shared a short speech about school high lights, people they are thankful for in their lives, and a Bible verse that holds special meaning to them. Then there was a power point presentation with photos of each of the 8th graders from their younger years.
Next year it will be Mikayla's turn to participate in the 8th grade graduation ceremony!
This week the kids are wrapping up their school year. The K - 3rd graders are heading to the beach Wednesday, 4th and 5th graders on Thursday. Class parties are planned.
Our kids are looking forward to summer break.
We plan to focus on language learning a bit more intensely this summer as a family, along with trips to the beach, a vacation, etc...
