A Surprising 5th Grade Graduation Celebration

by Catrice O’Neal, Director of Out-of-School-Time Programs

PCYC’s K-5 After School Enrichment Program hosted their annual 5th grade graduation this past spring, celebrating the academic achievements, friendships, and personal growth of each scholar moving on to 6th grade in the fall. 

Staff sent the 5th graders off with an evening filled with surprises beginning with a music video farewell that they wrote and performed, followed by Director Catrice O’Neal’s reading of Oh, the Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss, and ending with each of the scholars receiving a brand new bike and helmet. The bicycles were donated by Clifton Larson Allen through the Northside Achievement Zone (NAZ). Staff had no idea the bikes were coming until just a few hours before the event. Thanks to the quick response of program staff and NAZ, they were delivered to PCYC in time for each scholar to leave the celebration with a brand new bike.
