Jane and Sydney have gone to the same school from kindergarten through sixth grade, but now it's time to move to middle school.
The end of 6th grade is a much anticipated time at Evans Elementary. There is the final walk of the halls, the big party, and lots of fanfare. However, when you're not in school, none of these things can happen. Thankfully, there were still some celebrations to be had!
One of the best things the girls has taken from Evans is a great group of friends. They are lucky that they have so many friends living in our neighborhood, so we spent the day celebrating with all of them.
We started the day with a drive-thru parade with all of the teachers. Jane and Sydney have had some great teachers since they started in kindergarten, so it was fun to bid them all farewell.
Each student was given a bag of goodies and a balloon. As the bell rang, the students heard the school song and released their balloons.
We finished the day with a gathering in the cul-de-sac with lots of 6th grade families. As I was reading through some texts on Sydney's phone, I saw that one of her friends wrote "that was the best day ever." I'm so glad that they had fun, even if it wasn't how they imagined it would end!
Here's to the class of 2026!
