Proud parents and siblings filled Prospect Elementary School’s fifth grade hall on a recent Thursday for the culminating event of the students’ years at Prospect: presentations that the fifth graders themselves put together.


There was, said Prospect principal Jim Eibel, complete student ownership of the event. Teachers Lauri Brua, Robin Diedrick, Joy Harrison, and Kimberlee English were in the classrooms but not a part of the action. They watched as their students talked about their chosen subjects, such as child abuse and neglect, endangered animals, gun safety, and ocean pollution.


Groups of students presented each topic, standing in front of carefully constructed posters. Some of the presentations included audience participation games. The students were proud of what they learned and produced for the occasion.


Although it was not a formal graduation, it marked the completion of the primary years as defined by the International Baccalaureate program. Next year, fifth-graders will enter Langston Middle School.


The event concluded with teachers, students, and families enjoying cake and ice cream.
