Before Pierce High School students take on the world, they took a step back, strolling through the Junior High and Elementary Schools.
“Our ‘Parade of Graduates’ is a fun way to celebrate our students in the twelfth grade that are going to the next level,” said Patty Gonzalez, PHS College, and Career Technician.
Gonzalez commented that the ‘Parade of Graduates’ would showcase the students accomplishment and encourage the younger students to succeed in their education goals.
“Our students are very excited about going to Arbuckle Elementary and Johnson Junior High and to celebrate their last moment with the school district,” said Gonzalez.
As the graduating class of 2016 walked along the school’s corridor, they were greeted with words of encouragement, high fives, and handcrafted signs of congratulatory.
The graduating seniors commented that it was bittersweet but exciting.
This is the first ‘Parade of Graduates’ held by Pierce High School; however, Gonzalez said that they hope to make it an annual tradition.
