Tyler's 5th Grade Completion Ceremony

Yea for Tyler! He is no longer an elementary school kid. He's a big ugly middle schooler! These are some of his friends: (on the stairs: Tyler, Keegan, Chris and Joe). Tyler goes to a cool school called Golda Meir, an urban gifted and talented school. They have 3 classes each of 3, 4 and 5th grades. Recently, they added one class each of 6, 7 and 8th grades. Sometime earlier this year, they invite the top 1/3 of the 5th grades to stay on for middle school. All 4 of these boys will remain at Golda next year. We are so proud of Tyler. He loves his friends and teachers and all the great opportunites going to a school like this gives him that he would not receive in a regular public school. For example, during his years here, his class took overnight trips to Chicago, a submarine, and camping. He got to serve as a junior docent at the art museum and has learned to tap dance, although he will not demonstrate this for you! Congratulations, Tyler. We wish for you continued success as you apply yourself to all kinds of learning.
