School's out for summer

Olivia Seymour and Kelsey Elliott made their way though the halls of Central Grade School at the end of their last day of fifth grade.

The girls participated in a 27-year-old tradition Wednesday in which fifth-grade students destined for junior high school next year walk throughout student-lined hallways and receive handshakes from their younger peers.

About 9,000 Traverse City Area Public Schools students launched into summer break Wednesday afternoon.
