CRIDERSVILLE — Sixty-six fourth graders are headed to middle school.
In a special recognition program last night, the fourth grade classes at Cridersville Elementary were honored for their work in safety patrol, academia and citizenship.
D.A.R.E Officer Sam Blank was on hand to lend his congratulations and advice on what to expect next year at Wapakoneta Middle School.
“Fourth graders you have completed your career at Cridersville Elementary, for some of you this seems scary, some of you seem very excited,” Blank said. “But I want you to know that even though middle school may be different, the principal may be different, the teachers may be different, one thing you’ll still have is a bunch of people that care for you.”
