A Prince of Peace fifth-grader celebrates the “bridge crossing” before entering middle school next year.
Prince of Peace Catholic School’s fifth-graders recently celebrated their “bridge crossing” and “house sorting” in preparation for entering middle school.
The students ran through a tunnel of red, green, blue and yellow flags held aloft by eighth- grade students, and parents, students and teachers cheered nearby. The four colors represent the four POP middle school service houses: St. James, St. Thomas, St. Francis and St. Paul.
The students signed their names on their class banner and were officially “sorted” into their middle school houses.
The “bridge crossing” name for the ceremony was initially coined because students previously crossed a bridge connecting the early elementary and upper elementary buildings.
