Awe summer vacation - what a treat. But before the vacation could begin for thousands of area students, the school year had to end.
Students took part in end of year awards ceremonies, parties and graduations - from kindergarten, middle school and high school.
The awards they earned and memories they made will live forever in the photos family and friends took to mark these historic moments in the students' lives. Our readers shared some of their favorite moments.
The newest photo contest - fun in the sun - has begun. See Page A1 for details.
