On Thursday, May 25th, 2017, teachers, faculty, parents and students attended the Kindergarten Graduation Ceremony, class of 2017. The ceremony was held at 230 Jones St on Thursday evening and 19 kindergarten students were graduated.
Pastor Roger opened the evening in prayer and Mrs. Laura Osborn, began addressing the students and parents. Recognition was given to each of the kindergarten students of a Godly character they displayed in the classroom throughout the year.
Osborn addressed how each of the students displayed forgiveness and loved one another. "...Many times as a teacher I would say, I'm here to teach them math, reading, writing, to play and share, to do this and to do that. But God put these 19 in my life to teach me something and to work in my heart to become a better teacher, a better person."
"...Thank you parents for giving your best to help your child grow and excel in reading, and writing and math, but the most important thing is God's character coming and shining out of them. My charge is to take time and listen to them, and talk to them, to play with them. They may be small and young but their hearts are so big. They feel when you're mad, sad, upset or happy. When you are sick they pray for you. You guys are always on their hearts."
Mrs. Laura Osborn closed with a prayer for her graduating students and sent off each one as a 1st Grader!
Thank you to all the parents, students, staff and faculty for attending the ceremony and supporting our City Academy Warriors!
