WW: Last Day of Elementary {Linky}

Mica had his last day of Elementary School a week and a half ago. I think it's so odd that we make such a big deal out of kids ending preschool, which is only a year or two, but we don't for elementary that's five or six years. I'm not saying that Elementary School should have caps and gowns, but why do many of our preschools?

Anyhow Mica will be moving on up to middle school next year. He'll be bussed for the first time. Many of his fellow classmates are going to different middle schools. An old chapter ended, and a new chapter is soon to begin.

Mica and his teacher Mrs. Hume:


I admit that I did tear up when they kept calling Mica's name off for different things:
  • 1st in the Science Fair that he did with his friend Aiden. They did theirs on germs in the house.
  • Safety Patrol all year long, before and after school.
  • Student Council where this year they mentored younger children. Mica felt super proud of that!
  • Gold for academics. 
  • He was mentioned for being the top of the school for the Spelling Bee, and in a group for the Golden Sower Reading Competition. 
I was holding my composer just fine, until Mr. Miller asked for the box of tissues because he just couldn't hold his tears back any longer.


I handed Mica his book that I had all his teacher's sign. I only wish that I would have thought to have his PE, art, music, councilor and technology teachers sign it. Oh well. All his main teacher's signed it.


My little boy started out at this school as a shy Kindergartener: 


Now he's a confident 6th grader:


I know awards are just pieces of paper, but they do make me proud:

I'm sure those awards are more than just paper to Mica. They have helped him to grow, create goals and achieve them, and become more confident! He'll do great in sixth grade! (Though I don't blame you for being a little weepy!)

Congrats Mica!!!
I know you guys are all so proud!!!
Our Elementary school does a big deal for 5th grade. They go on a special field trip, have 5th grade day, have a special dance during the day, have a graduation and so much more.
It was so exciting!

Now you had a lot of awww with all these wonderful achievements. I know you're proud and you have every right to be.

Those awards are important. They're a concrete, visible acknowledgement of his achievements. That kind of thing is important to a person. Awards demonstrate a persons accomplishments to their peers.

Going on to Middle School is a big step. There are a whole new series of things to deal with, life is more complex, both for the kid and the parents.

He'll do fine.

It's amazing how quickly it goes, eh? My oldest is creeping up on 17, and has been in college for over two years. That was weird enough, but when my second child started into teenagedom, wow. Why do they have to grow up?

Congrats to Mica and to you.
