It was like a dress rehearsal, complete with the sound of Pomp and Circumstance.
The 2017 graduating class from Proctor spent the morning at the two elementary schools.
They wore their caps and gowns, and walked through the halls, getting high-fives, handshakes, and hugs.
"I put on my gown, and I was like, oh! I got a little nervous, because it's getting real," Abby Rohweder said. "It was super fun seeing my old teachers, and all the kids clapping and shaking our hands," she added.
Her friend, Libby Palokangas, added, "It doesn't feel like that long ago that I was in this school, waiting to be one of the older kids. Now I am, and they are so excited, so filled with hope."
One of the teachers there reflected on what it was like to see the older kids and younger kids interact.
"To see the awe in the students' faces. It was cool to see. They had to look up, and they were all smiles. All the attention was on the seniors. They were so excited to cheer them on, wish them well in college or if they're working," shared Sarah Myhre, a first grade teacher.
The 2017 class of Rails is 136 students. Congratulations!
