Remember Grade 7? Years ago Grade 7 meant the beginning of Junior High/Middle School. Nowadays graduating Grade 7 means your teenager/tweenager is heading to high school in the fall.
Last night schools such as Harwood Elementary and Ecole-Beairsto celebrated their Grade 7 class of 2017.
Each of the students went on stage with a fellow classmate and read each other’s list of favourite things about school and what they’re aspirations are for the coming years.
My daughter talked about getting the opportunity to help with some art projects that are now visible outside Bearirsto Elementary. They include a painting project which explains the water cycle, as well as a mural project incorporating Canada Day with the Class of 2017. Tristen came up with idea for the Canada Day project and her friend Casie, who was in charge of the mural project asked her to help be a part of the painting process as well.
After all of the students comments were read which included everything from kids hoping to be NHL stars, doctors, and rich, in the future, to hoping that their friends remain friends and don’t die, there was a lovely photo/video production to show photos of all of the students during all their years at the school. The video also included the principal and teachers dancing to Pharell Williams “Happy”.
The kids had dressed up, had pizza, took photos and then quickly changed to take in a massive water fight.
To all the students who are graduating from Grade 7 this year, and to all of the parents and teachers, who are thinking, “Wow, where did the time go?”, Here’s to you!
Happy Class of 2017!
