As a school principal being newly assigned to the Balabag Elementary School for this school year 2014-2015, I was impressed of the behavior which these 44 graduating pupils showed me. Out of 44, 22 belongs to Camia Class under Mrs. Mailyn M. Miguel, while another 22 belongs to Jasmine Class handled by Miss Nonalie Vargas.
The attitude of these 44 pupils was commendable. They're cooperative, well-behaved and easy to handle. By their exemplary behavior, the school is optimistic that someday they could make their school proud of them for their great achievement on their field of expertise.
The Graduating Pupils

In my first year in Balabag Elem. School, I found these kids too enthusiastic on their studies. They're too participative on school related activities like scouting, pupil government, community outreach program.
They're courteous and polite. They're industrious and too thoughtful. I remember on how they've valued so much their teachers on Valentine's Day and Teacher's Day. I've not even spared from their thoughtfulness. I've received a hand-made Valentine's Card which is simple but with a meaningful words of dedication not only as a school principal to them but a second father to them.
I will be missing these lovely 44 pupils who will be marching on stage to receive their certificate of graduation. These 44 would be a great help and support to the school someday as they attain their ambition in life.
Congratulations to all graduates of Class 2015! Kudos to the teachers, parents, school officials and education partners of Balabag Elementary School who committed their time, talent and treasure for our pupils and student to complete their studies.
