Moving on up

The 2019 Sixth Grade Step Up Assembly was held on May 30 at HMK Elementary School. More than 120 students begin middle school next school year. Hiroshi Burriola, Elisabeth Knight, Aracely Medina, and Maggie Wilkowske had perfect attendance from kindergarten through the sixth grade and each received a Mongoose bicycle courtesy of Crump-Reese Auto. HMK Principal Ms. Kay encouraged the students to change the world and make it a better place through acts of kindness. Above, Yasmin Lovato’s relative snuck up in front of the crowd, gave her balloons, a stuffed animal, and an affectionate peck on the cheek at the HMK sixth grade ceremony.
