Saying goodbye

The final week of classes saw new beginnings for some and endings for others at Gerald Elementary School. A fifth grade celebration and D.A.R.E. was held Monday, May 14. Students received several types of awards for reading, science projects and art (above). When school resumes, the former fifth graders will be attending Owensville Middle School. On Tuesday, May 15, kindergarten students  celebrated their accomplishments. After the ceremony, they enjoyed treats in the cafeteria (left) and each received a balloon and beach ball. Mark Jett, physical education teacher, (below, second from left) spent the final moments of  his 24-year teaching career by watching a wheelbarrow race in the gymnasium.
