This past Wednesday, the 6th graders graduated from Raey Guang Elementary School. They spent the previous week signing shirts and yearbooks, cleaning classrooms and saying good-byes.

Wednesday, they were greeted with flowers and banners. Some of the younger classes made special posters for them.

Students took a final walk around the campus before entering the filled auditorium.

Each student was handed their diploma by the principal and awards were presented by special guests: principals from other schools, head of the PTO and me!!

One of the traditions is to have a fifth grade student (memorize) and deliver a speech to the graduating class. She did such a wonderful job!

After the ceremony, teachers and students line the path the graduates would walk as they symbolically left the school for the last time.
