Middle School Promotion

Wesley's 8th grade promotion ceremony was held today in the Carver Middle School gym. They divided the 8th graders up into two teams and he was in the first group that graduated at 11am. This made it a much more pleasant experience fitting into the gymnasium. 

Processing in

Wesley was recognized for being a student athlete, receiving plaques and certificates for being part of the co-ed soccer team and the boys' basketball team. 

Wesley ended up being recognized for academics with the FAME award (which he also got in 6th grade). This is for maintaining a 3.5 GPA over the entire year with no Cs. 

Recognition for cords. The black cords he was wearing were for earning one high school credit in middle school and the grey cords were for National Junior Honor Society. This was nice and new for us - they did not do cords for Parker's middle school promotion ceremony. Wesley was surprised with these before the ceremony - they did not practice or tell the kids ahead of time. 

Having his name called for promotion. 

Processing out. It is done! 

Pictures with our graduate. So proud! Thankful to have Grandmommy make the trip up today and be able to stay and enjoy lunch with everyone also. 

We gave Wesley a choice of where to eat for lunch and he picked Cody's in The Villages. We did presents while we were waiting on lunch. Wesley got a big BBQ burger. 

When we got home, we laid out all of his honors and awards!
