The pride and energy at Banaadir Elementary was incredible as students sang songs, received recognition (and lots of cheers!) and marked their big accomplishments.  Student speakers shared wisdom and experiences “Try your best and take your time.  I love this school!”

And one teacher, who teared up as she wished her students well and on into their next grade, “you are going to change the world some day.”

Banaadir Academy 8th graders were also recognized for their accomplishments and readiness for high school.
