Fifth-Grade Students are on to Middle School

Fifth-Grade Students are on to Middle School

June 13 was a celebration of French International fifth graders as they “step up” to a new division and move on to Middle School.

The 29 fifth graders were celebrated in a ceremony attended by their families, friends, faculty, and staff. They were presented with certificates of completion, a testament to their hard work and dedication. The students also performed two songs, a beautiful display of their growth and the unique spirit of their class.

Many students have been part of the French International community since they were in Maternelle. Completing Lower School is a significant accomplishment as it symbolizes the end of the Primary Years Programme (PYP). This year’s fifth graders have traveled to France, attended field studies in Central Oregon, showcased their talents during Fête de la Musique, and impacted French International and the Portland community through exhibition projects.

Most of this year’s fifth graders are moving to Middle School at French International, where they’ll continue their educational journey with new classmates, teachers, and languages. Congratulations, French International fifth graders. We can’t wait to see what you do in Middle School and beyond.
