6th grade continuation ceremony. Speeches were given by the principal and students. A touching and emotional day.

Prior to the big day, class room mom's had the students make creative hand print artowork that was displayed during the ceremony. During the setup the night before the big day, I managed to sneak a couple pictures of Rob and Christian with their hand prints.
