  • No but her preschool did with little caps and gowns etc. This was in a center though not public. I think public schools just don't have that kind of funding anymore though really it wouldn't take so much. They don't even necessarily need the cap and gown. Just walking through a homemade arch and being presented with a "diploma" and a hug.

  • Ours doesn't either, but each class has some sort of end of the year party or class performance for the parents to go to. My Kindergartner's was a little play they'd rehearsed, and my 2nd grader's was a Hawaiian luau. I had fun at both!

  • Our school does it :) I'm sorry that yours didn't, it's really a nice way to send the kids to 1st grade. Our school also has a 5th grade "graduation" for the kids before going to the middle school.

  • No, they don't do it where we are either. They did it for pre-k, but not kindergarten. They did have a year end performance where they sang songs for the parents and then they got little gifts (like sand pails and bubbles), but that was it.

  • No, NONE of the school districts here to do that!

  • Yes, our kinder grad had a celebration ceremony. They sang songs, got their promotion certificates, and we had a huge pot-like breakfast type deal. We got to see all her work through the years, and got her final report card as well. It was awesome!

  • No, ours doesn't. They don't have a preschool graduation either. :(
