It was not our traditional graduation ceremony this year, but it was still special. Our 8th graders were surprised with yard decorations, and on the day of graduation our full faculty and staff lined up on campus cheering for our students as they drove two laps around the circle collecting graduation boxes before heading home for a live watch party of our pre-recorded ceremony.
It was a special moment for many reasons. We were all so happy to see each other outside of a screen, and so proud of the accomplishments of these students, not just in the past few months but over many years of watching them grow up. We will miss them dearly and we hope they have learned valuable lessons at Grymes that they will carry out into the world. Grizzlies for life!
