They left as fifth graders in 2012 and returned to Elsmere on Thursday, May 23, greeted by cheers, as the entire Elsmere student body welcomed back 26 graduating seniors who once attended the elementary school. The returning students shared their post-graduation plans and joined the younger students in the Color Guard ceremony, reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, singing the school song, and viewing photos from their years at the school.

Parents, teachers, administrators and former faculty members all gathered for the celebration that has become an annual event at Elsmere — one that encourages students to set goals at an early age. The school was decorated with college pennants that each featured a fifth grade photo of the graduating senior and the college he or she is planning to attend.
