Clap Out

Fifth-grader Jose Jimenez runs through lines of classmates Tuesday during a "clap out" for the last day of school at Jason Lee Elementary School. The tradition serves as a goodbye to fifth-graders before they go to middle school the next year with students lining the halls to clap and cheer as they run from one end of the hall to the next.
