It is a pleasure to share in the intensity of emotions filling this room

It is a pleasure to share in the intensity of emotions filling this room, as we, the graduates, close this chapter of our lives with the anticipation of opening a new one next year at middle school.
We are here today to celebrate this very special milestone in our lives. It is bittersweet that these are the last days of elementary school.Whether we have been here since kindergarten, or were a new student along the way, we have had the privilege to be educated by the best teachers, at the best school.
So parents, doesnt it feel like it was just yesterday when you walked us to our first day of kindergarten with a backpack that was almost as big as we were, and a huge smile filled with excitement. Or maybe you had the crier whose fingers you had to pry off one by one as you tried to leave? But here we are today, your little kindergartener is now graduating.
