There is a gathering that happens every year here – the sixth grade graduation. Our family has been part of the elementary school since 2010. Joshua has attended there since second grade. He has been blessed with terrific teachers for every grade level – Miss Groh – grade 2, Mrs. Clay – grades 3 & 4 and Mrs. Lane – grades 5 & 6. They have encouraged his academic growth, spiritual growth and character development. The school goes up to grade six. It’s a milestone that’s celebrated here when students are graduating from the elementary school preparing to go into the secondary school here, RFIS or going to another school system in the student’s passport country. It made me feel like a long-timer here when I realized I was the only parent who has been privy to previous sixth grade graduations – the other parents are either new to the country or the school. I coordinated the event with the other parents and it turned out to be a great time of honoring the students. Below are some pictures from the wonderful time of honoring our sixth graders. We are so proud of the young man Joshua is becoming.
