School is out for the summer in Columbia.

Students at Rockbridge Elementary studied all year long, and now, they can enjoy some free time.

"I'm going to go to Oaklahoma," Allie Maltsberger said.

"Soccer, football, baseball," Jay Kimble added.

Dr. Ryan Link said as the principal at Rockbridge, he has a very rewarding career.

"Seeing all of your kids growing from kindergarten to fifth grade, growing and changing and developing over the years," he said.

Maltsberger is a fifth grade student now, but she is looking forward to next school year at the middle school.

"I'm super excited, but I'm just nervous there might be a lot of homework," she said.

Dr. Link gives credit to the staff at Rockbridge for giving kids an enjoyable learning experience.

"I think it just speaks to everything that the teachers and staff do every day to make a difference in each kids life," Link said.

While students are excited for summer break, Dr. Link said there is also some apprehension for the future.

"Some kids came in this morning and said I'm sad and I said 'well, you're not leaving, and they said, well but I'm leaving for the summer' so some kids are sad that school is over."

The 2018-19 school year for Columbia students starts August 14.
