Dougherty County- These first graders earned the chance to pop this piñata.
They're the only class at Lamar Reese Elementary School where every student passed their CRCT test. Their teacher is a long-term sub.
"They're really hard workers and I have pushed them so much and they've done wonderful," said Charlene Bishop.
Every student here has the right to celebrate. Lamar Reese is one of several schools that helped Dougherty County earn a $50,000 state award because so many of their students are passing state tests.
Even the excitement about summer break isn't as glorious as making the grade.
"Teachers can do all that they can, but without that extra community enhancement and parental support, none of it's going to work," said John I. Davis, a fifth grade teacher.
That work is done, for this school year anyway and everybody's ready for time off.
"I have a lot of fun learning, but I also love having a break and swimming and having fun with other friends," said Mehailjah Gaines, a graduating fifth grader.
"I love my students, but it's about time for a break," Davis said.
So with book bags packed for the final time, school's out and summer's in.
