Poplin Celebrates Fifth Grade Students Moving Forward to Middle School

Fifth grade student Jordan Politowicz hugs her teacher Kim Peck as she walks the Poplin hallways for the final time as a fifth grade student.

Poplin Elementary promoted 103 fifth grade students on Wednesday, June 11, 2014 during the Fifth Grade Promotion Ceremony. The ceremony began with Principal Scott Broome as he welcomed parents and families who came to celebrate this milestone with their child. Fifth grade students Bella Rowland and Merilyn Thomas led the Pledge of Allegiance. Then each fifth-grade teacher presented a certificate to the students. Following this, the fifth-grade students sang “Time of Your Life,” by Green Day. Then teachers showed a slideshow of pictures from the school year. Assistant Principal James Eversole made closing remarks.

Then all students in grades Kindergarten - Fourth Grade lined the hallways along with all the fifth grade parents and families for what has become an annual tradition at Poplin, called the “Clap Out.” Fifth grade students walked each of the hallways with their teacher as the music, “Pomp and Circumstance,” was played throughout the school. The whole school community came into the hallways to clap and wish the fifth graders congratulations as the students took their final walk of the Poplin hallways.
