As the school year came to an end yesterday students were filled with joy, excitement and anticipation of what the summer will bring.
A handful of students were also met with the challenge of saying goodbye to the school they have grown up in throughout the past five years.
Wapakoneta Elementary School fourth graders were celebrated at the end of the school day Monday as they officially make their way onto fifth grade, and middle school.
Fourth grader, Lydia Cottrell, from Mrs. Turner’s class said one of the things she is looking forward to most about middle school is being a little more independent.
“I’m looking forward to, we get to go on our own to different places and not have a teacher walk us there,” Cottrell said. “I’m happy about having specials for nine weeks and not worry about all the different things you have to bring to be ready for every special.”
