CES Principal Elisha Rhodes closed the ceremony by congratulating students on their accomplishments this school year.


And, while teachers’ ability to hug and love on their students has been altered by social distancing, Rhodes said, they are still honored to recognize them.


Rhodes said the fifth-graders leave a legacy behind as leaders and in character and academics.


She thanked all parents, grandparents, family members and friends who have trusted CES staff members with their children.


“Thank you for all that you have done to collaborate with us throughout your student’s career at CES, as well as the past 41 days of NTI, as we work to discover a new normal.”


Rhodes thanked those who have invested their lives into CES students.


“Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to invest and love on them as well,” she said.


“It has been our privilege to have been a part of their educational journey. And a task that we have never taken lightly.”


Rhodes congratulated students on completing fifth grade.


“We are so very proud of you,” she said.


“As you close the chapter of CES, always remember, the future belongs to those are willing to take ownership in their piece of the puzzle. Find your piece and lead with confidence.”


Rhodes said there is greatness in every student.


“Seek your inner genius and allow your greatness to shine,” she said.


It’s been an honor to watch students grow at CES, she said, and, at the same time, that has helped teachers grow, too.


“We will forever cherish your WIG celebrations, the sound of a cowbell and your love for dodgeball.”


Rhodes said she and the other staff members at CES are excited to see students continue writing the story of their education.


“We pray blessings over your next chapter at CMS. You have been prepared for such a time as this.


“And we are beyond excited to have been a part of your journey. Thank you for all you have done to make CES who we are.”
