They’re red, white, and through with elementary school!

The fifth-grade class at PS 6 in Flatbush celebrated its graduation to middle school with a ceremony on June 17, and the kids’ teacher said she couldn’t have been happier with her brood’s academic advancement.

“I felt like a proud parent,” said teacher Tatia Allen. “It felt good to see your students moving on to the next stage in their lives.”

The youths’ actual parents and siblings said they were just as delighted to see their family members don red and white caps and gowns for the ceremony, which was held at nearby Erasmus Hall High School.

“I was ecstatic,” said Antoinette Campbell, whose sister Alexandra was one of the graduates. “It was a nice process.”

The fifth-graders aren’t the only ones who won’t be back at the Snyder Avenue institution next year — principal Ellen Carlisle is retiring, ending her 11-year tenure at the school.
