grad9:30 a.m. – Forum: Graduations, led by Patricia Ice

There are graduations from kindergarten, elementary, middle or high school, college, graduate or professional school. What does a graduation mean to us? Why do some people think they are important and others do not? How do we feel if we do not graduate? How do we feel if we graduate at the top of our classes? How do we feel if we graduate in the middle or bottom of of classes? Are we happy for our friends or family when they graduate? If we do graduate does it make a difference from where? What about kids who are home schooled and graduation? Come share your stories about graduations.
