The flower does not dream of the arrival of the bee. It just blooms, and all seventy-nine students in the fifth grade of Shanghai Shangde Experimental School PYP department also ushered in the graduation day with sunflower blossoms.
The word "graduation," summarizes the ups and downs of the fifth-grade students of the SSES, carrying the care and expectation of parents and elders for many years. It also embodies the silent and selfless dedication of teachers. The soothing sound of Scottish Piccolo has already sounded. In Principle Yao and Principle David Richardson's reading, Principle Jiang issued graduation certificates to every fifth-grade student.
The ancient Chinese classics are a long-lasting gem in the cultural arts garden. From the first grade to the fifth grade, each piece contains a rich philosophy of the world and life. As students of the SSES, we should also inherit and promote the Chinese nation's traditional culture.
Reflecting on the inexperience of first and second grades, the impetuous third grade, the calm and restrained fourth grade, and the fruitful fifth grade, everyone has many memories and things to say. Graduate representative, Jerry always remembers the respectful teachings of Principle Jiang. From class 5B, Jenny expressed her gratitude to parents and teachers. Trisha, of Class 5C, spoke out on her fellow graduates' heartfelt words. She always encouraged herself with the ten learner profile attributes to become a person who knew how to care and reflect on time.
The graduation season, bathed in the sunshine and rain. I believe that the most gratifying people are the teachers; they witnessed the growth of the children. In the applause, Mr. Xu and Mr. Dorsey, the fifth-grade teachers' representatives, came to the stage and gave the students blessings of the sun. After that, the children presented golden sunflowers to the teachers.
Chinese martial arts has been known as a national symbol of physical fitness and justice for thousands of years. At SSES, we also learned five-step boxing and taekwondo, and under the leadership of PE teacher Han Yi, the fifth graders shouted the slogan.
Parental love is an indispensable natural element between the earth, and the parent committee has always been our strong support. The chairman of the Parent committee came out on stage and gave a blessing to the children's future. Together with principal Jiang, they unveiled the gift of the family committee, an electric piano.
Principal Jiang's words are still in our ears. After five years of growth, the principal and we have witnessed the organic growth of the school. The principal affirmed our philosophy of running a school, which enabled us to shine at last year's IB China Forum. Today's achievements are inseparable from the efforts of all teachers and students. At the same time, Principal Jiang taught us to remember our Chinese soul in a diverse new world environment.
An adaptation of the song <Junior>by fifth grade students and orchestra is refreshing.The young men in front of us are still the original face, no matter how hard and dangerous we are in front of us, let us take the most beautiful blessings and meet again at the next stop!

Shangde life, make yourself happy
Keep dreaming and life will be better
Every experience is a harvest
What are you waiting for and make the right choice
Flower without fruit
Growing always requires some effort
Soaring in the wind
Dedication to the power of youth
That teenager has grown up
