After lowering the flag on Friday morning, students hugged their teachers goodbye.

As Grand Haven Area Public Schools ended the 2018-19 school year on Friday, Ferry Elementary School and Voyager School staff and students held their annual ceremony complete with school songs.

Members of the Charles A. Conklin American Legion Post 28 presented students with a Certificate of Appreciation for their display of Americanism. As of a show of appreciation, Janet Clark and Jim Sommerfeldt, who retired at the conclusion of the school year, also received challenge coins from Post 28 and flags that previously flew over the local school.
