Tommie Barfield Elementary School held its Fifth Grade graduation ceremony recently. Parents, friends and relatives filled the cafeteria which had been decorated for the event. The theme of the celebration was Stepping Into the Future with black and gold colors as chosen by the graduates. Several students, named below, were honored for their academic achievements. Shortly after receiving their Certificates of Completion, students and teachers in lower classes line the hallway with administrative staff. Fifth Grade teachers then walk their students through the halls of the school while everyone clapped. Children, parents and teachers filled this memorable rite of passage with cheers, tears and hugs.
