WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Wednesday marked the first day of summer break for kids in the West Lafayette Community School Corporation.

Students and staff said goodbye as the last day of school came to a close. 

Cumberland Elementary School celebrated their third graders who will graduate from Cumberland and go to Happy Hollow next year.

Third graders and their families went bowling, had a 'Done Run' and the third grade tunnel as they walk the halls in front of the entire school.

Cumberland principal Kim Bowers said the last day is always full of different emotions.

"It's kind of bittersweet because the students and the teachers fall in love with each other and so it's going to be a long summer and then we'll be very excited to get back to school next year," said Bowers.

It was also the last day for Cumberland principal Kim Bowers. After being at Cumberland for 14 years, Bowers is retiring.

"As I started to do the announcements this morning, I kind of had to swallow a couple of times but it certainly was also fun. We do that with the kids everyday and I realized how much I will be missing that next year," said Bowers.
