“I can’t believe school is over,” shouted one West Sioux Elementary School student as the final day of classes for 2012-2013 school year came to an end May 17.
Students got an hour’s jump on the summer vacation after a day mostly spent outdoors having fun. Games included kickball in one class or just climbing on swings. Several students thanked their teachers.
“They got their report cards, and I always give them a map at the Middle School/High School building so they can more easily find their sixth grade classes,” said fifth grade teacher Tiffany Millikan. This year all fifth graders had their own laptop computers to use.
About 50 fifth graders will make their way to the Middle School/High School building for 2013-2014 but that is a whole summer away.
