This morning my kindergartener had a small ceremony at school. It’s something every grade at the school does four times a year, once every quarter. It lasts less than an hour and the kindergarteners that have met certain requirements for the quarter get recognized for their efforts. It’s a very informal affair. The kids come out into the main lobby, sit on the ground and teachers call out the children’s names by class. The kids stand up, turn around and face the parents, the parents clap, the kids sit back down and that’s it. Afterwards, the parents that are there got to pull their kid to the side, give them a kiss, hug, a high-five and maybe a picture or two.
