The Fifth Grade Step-Up Day ceremony marks the completion of ACS Athens Elementary School, and is a significant milestone for our fifth grade students. Annually we highlight this memorable time with a special celebration for the students as they transition into middle school. After speeches from Ms. Moros and Dr. Pelonis, highlighting student growth and accomplishments from the year, the US Ambassador to the Hellenic Republic also came to the podium to offer some wisdom to our wide-eyed fifth graders. The students then dazzled everyone with a musical performance singing I feel Good, by James Brown while playing the  xylophone. Finally, students received their certificates to honor their ‘step’ into middle school, and a reception was enjoyed by all.

We wish the class of 2029 all the best as they transition into the next phase of their academic lives!
