Fourth graders at Destin Elementary School embraced their final days of the school year and prepared for a new journey during their graduation ceremony Thursday at the Destin Life Center.

Students laughed at a slideshow of baby pictures, sang a song and crossed a traditional symbolic bridge that represents crossing into a new chapter. The graduation ceremony left many students excited about entering the fifth grade.
