Gigi's 5th Grade Graduation Ceremony

Share |

Entering the room
I couldn’t have been prouder as Gigi graduated from elementary school with flying colors last week. She was recognized for being in the Math Olympiad group (a math class for students with high math scores), given the IB award for consistently demonstrating the character trait of being Open-Minded, and she is a member of the National Elementary Honor Society. Go Gigi!

Principal Alicia Hash gives Giovanni her 5th grade graduation certificate.


Also, check out how excited she was to see her second grade teacher Mrs. Jenkins, who retired after she so lovingly taught Gigi and her classmates three years ago.

Gigi spots her 2nd grade teacher.
           
" I can't believe how tall you are!"  
"I'm so proud of you!"

Alicia Benjamin said...

You're not getting old....you're growing wiser. :-)

Yes, isn't it amazing? Her kindergarten teacher saw her after the graduation and said, "I can't believe how tall your baby is!" and pretended to choke back a sob.
