The last assembly on the 180th day of school is always an anticipated event. The school community celebrates the accomplishments of all our 5th grade graduates as well as honor and remember  three very special Center School children by presenting awards to chosen members of  the graduating class in the children’s memories.   The entire staff nominates students and then votes for  the deserving  recipients of each award.
