Can we start a thread on graduation ideas -- I am looking for a song to play as the kids march in. I do not want the traditional graduation song. Last year, we marched in to "I Hope You Dance" by LeAnne Womack. I would like something different. What do you all use for caps and gowns? How long is your ceremony? So far, the kids will be singing one song -- one of my parents (and good friend) wrote a song for us and he will accompany with the acoustic guitar. I would like to incorporate a few more songs. Also, I want to recognize my parent volunteers with a rose -- I'll ask one child to present to the parent -- any other suggestions? End of the school gifts for kids??? There is not that much time --6 weeks or so and much work to be done.
