One of our great traditions at Slaughter is Good Morning Slaughter (GMS). During the last GMS the 5th graders come on stage to be recognized before leaving for middle school. Then the 4th graders move over, to where the 5th graders sit, and each grade repeats. Then there is a large empty spot where the incoming Kinder students will sit. Mary came to school with me that morning and sat in her spot for next year. There were several others there, too. She was sooooo excited.
