This evening we honored our 5th grade students as they have completed a portion of their educational journey.

Each of these learners have demonstrated incredible growth and perseverance throughout their elementary school years, and it is an absolute pleasure to recognize their achievements tonight.

So as you embark on this exciting journey through middle school and beyond, we wish you nothing but the most outstanding success! May your academic pursuits be filled with joy, and a sense of accomplishment. May your relationships with teachers, peers, and friends be nourishing and uplifting. And may your individuality shine bright as you grow and develop into amazing young people.

Remember, middle school is a time of discovery, exploration, and growth. It’s okay to make mistakes, learn from them, and adapt to new challenges. You are capable of achieving great things, and we have no doubt that you will continue to thrive and reach for your dreams.

From our hearts to yours, we wish you a wonderful middle school experience and an incredible future ahead!

Congratulations to The Biome’s CLASS OF 2024!

Farewell Fifth Grade: Today we’re honoring Arlandrea Archie. Congrats Arlandrea!
My favorite Biome memory: My favorite memory is when we made ice cream in 2nd grade.
What I want to be when I grow up: I want to be a hairstylist.
Where I’m going after 5th grade: Premier Charter School.
My favorite thing about The Biome: I like Field Day and the teachers. They’re nice!
A quote from The Biome staff: “Students from every grade look up to Arlandrea and she’s such a dynamic leader. She shows leadership in the Extended Day Program by helping students stay on task, facilitating snack on occasion, and showing students what the correct behavior should look like. Good luck in 6th grade Arlandrea. You got this!”
