Fourth graders in Christine Pase and Michelle Matos' class at Summit Lane Elementary School honored the heroes in their lives with a special hero celebration on June 6. Loved ones gathered in the school's all purpose room for the event entitled, "P.R.I.D.E. The Path To Becoming A Hero." Students were asked to invite a hero in their lives who exemplify the school's P.R.I.D.E. motto of Patience, Respect, Integrity, Determination and Excellence.

The room was decorated with orange balloons, pictures of each student and their hero, banners and tables with tissues for the guests. The class dressed in their orange P.R.I.D.E. T-shirts as they kicked off the celebration with "I'm Proud to be an American." Each student was then invited to the podium to read their speeches about their hero. In their writing, students shared how their hero lives by P.R.I.D.E. and the positive impact that their hero makes on their life. After their speech, the student presented the writing to their hero in the audience.

The class also performed the songs "Count on Me," "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" and concluded with "Because You Loved Me," which made both the students and their guests emotional. A slideshow was presented which showcased each student as a baby, a picture of them with their hero and photos from throughout the school year. After the slideshow, the students sat with their heroes and heard from Mrs. Pase and Mrs. Matos who expressed how wonderful the class was this year and how much each student will be missed. The heroes were then invited to enjoy some refreshments with their student as the event drew to a close.
