done with elementary school

I graduated from Springer Elementary School today. It's so hard to believe 6th grade is already over. Here I come, middle school!

The graduation ceremony was somewhat bittersweet. Because I had been a part-time student for most of the school year, I was not eligible for a diploma. On the other hand, I did receive the President's Award for Academic Excellence, something I'm really proud of. I'd say finishing elementary school is a big achievement in itself. But at the same time, it was a little sad to part with all the friends I've made at Springer.

Although I only became a full-time student about three weeks ago, I had come to know my classmates well. I'm definitely going to miss everyone, especially Mrs. Carrie; she was one of the coolest teachers I've ever had. You're probably going to laugh at me for this, but I actually cried on the way home. *blush*

Of course, the school year wouldn't be complete without some sort of celebration. That isn't something lost on my classmate Brianna, who has invited all of us to her graduation party tomorrow. I'm extremely grateful to be included with the rest of the class. In any case, I think the party is going to be lots of fun!

For those curious, I'll be going to Egan Junior High School in the fall. Middle school will certainly be more challenging, but at least I have two and a half months to prepare for it. Right now, it's time to enjoy summer. :-)

Update: To celebrate the occasion, my parents took me to the Fish Market in Palo Alto for dinner. The food was delicious!

In other news...

I was too lazy to blog about it earlier, but I saw Deep Impact in the theater a few days ago. It was a great movie in my opinion.
