My youngest 2 children attend a charter school in our city. The school is for 4k(4 yr old kindergarten, all full day) through 6th grade. Well, I just found out that they now have a "5k Move Up Day" in June for students in the 5 yr old kindergarten program. It must be relatively new because they didn't do this when my son was in 5k. I was just wondering if anyone else has this sort of thing in their schools. I mean, I'm all for pomp and circumstance when appropriate but at this point most of the students have already been there for 2 years and will be staying there for 1st grade. There not going anywhere. The first grade classrooms are on the same floor as the kindergarten rooms(so are the second graders for that matter). I guess I just don't understand why they need to celebrate every little thing. They already have a 4k & 5k awards ceremony in June. Isn't that enough?
