My son's school does not do a kindergarten graduation! Do they not do that anymore? I had one when I was a kid, which was a long time ago but still, I thought they did kindergarten graduations. I was looking forward to it. Am I way behind the times?

My son 's school didn't either. They did a program where each class sang two songs and then a party in the classroom and the teacher handed out the certificates.

I'm sorry, but I firmly believe that anything other than a graduation ceremony from high school and college, is utterly ridiculous.  It may be a milestone, but it's no big deal.  In my opinion, it is just a marketing tool by Balfour and Josten's to milk money out of parents.  lol

My dd did virtual K and they still had an in person graduation ceremony. The school that she is in now also has them but they call it a promotion ceremony instead. They have one for K and one for the 8th graders since it's a K-8 school.

I was looking forward to my dd having one but they didn't, they had a party on the last day but the school believes a "graduation" is meant for high school and I'm ok with that :)
