Today was Grade 8 Grad at Lauren's school. 200 + kids and a whole PILE of awards had to be handed out. It was a little long winded (what ceremony isn't), but the kids all did a GREAT job!
Before the diplomas were handed out, the parents were briefed on what the kids had been told at the rehearsal on Friday, "Shake, take and smile". The parents were instructed to "Wait, snap and retreat". It was hysterical. Each of the kids came forward when their name was called, shook hands with their teacher, took their diploma and turned with a cheesy smile to face the parent taking the photograph. SO funny!
In between the handing out of the diplomas, awards were handed out. The kids weren't told in advance who was winning the awards. Lauren won the music award for the core students. WOOT!
That's my girl! Looking TOTALLY stunning...and WAY too grown up!
Thanks for stopping by!
