Third graders at Denison Elementary School have a long-standing tradition. On the last day of school, they make graduation caps out of purple paper, put them on and parade through the building’s hallways, receiving “high fives” and fist bumps from staff and applause from younger students. They assemble in the gym for a talk from Principal Chris Schulz and then get to throw their caps into the air. The third graders are not only graduating to fourth grade but also to another building - Broadway Elementary - for the next two years. Photo by Gordon Wolf
