Grand daughter graduated from 8th grade today. So very proud of her. She and her sister attend a charter school. The gathering was very nice - the kids were not allowed limos and all the associated nonsense that goes along with them. It felt like a good old fashioned celebration of the kids' accomplishments.

Congratulations to her.

But. . . limos for 8th grade graduation? I've never heard of that before.

Your granddaughter is beautiful!!


I had never heard of Limos either!!

We don't even have an 8th grade graduation at our school. They did an award night where just the kids who got awards were invited (Char didn't get any) and then an open house where the kids and parents came to school, the kids signed year books and we got to look at the kids artwork. Actually, the night was quite boring!!

They didn't call it a "graduation" but a "promotion celebration". They recognized the kids who had made the honor roll, those who were student mentors and those who were student leaders. Then each of the teachers presented an outstanding student award in each class - math, history and so on. It was heartwarming to hear the kids cheer and clap for one another. As teachers were introduced the kids cheered and clapped for them also. The teachers were entertaining for the most part and the kids were just happy.

First graduation/promotion I've attended in a long time that was enjoyable. No screaming or air horns - if you know what I mean.

Beautiful girl, you go right ahead and be proud.

My daughter is finishing grade 8 this year, and hits high school and my son leaves elementary and hits middle school.
