Today is my daughter’s last day of the 5th grade and there is a commencement ceremony at the school.
I don’t think I had a ceremony when I moved onto middle school (they called it junior high when I was a kid), did you?
No. I only had one graduation, when I finished high school. My kids had graduation from nursery school.
Elementary was K-6, junior high was 7-9. We had an evening program that “graduated” us from grammar to junior high.
It was 1952, an election year. We all had to recite something about the election process. (My mother said it was one of the most boring…)
I had an 8th grade graduation from parochial school (1970). Our school corporation did not have the present day middle school (grades 6, 7, 8) until 1971. Up to that point, if a student was in public school, it was grades K-7 for grammar school, 8 and 9 in junior high, and 10, 11, 12 for high school.
Haven’t had my coffee yet…that was supposed to be present day middle school – grades 6, 7 and 8 – until 1971.
The only graduation I had was from high school. My son will have an 8th grade graduation, because he’s in an old-school Catholic school that goes K4 – 8th grade. But my sub-par education never did anything to celebrate me going to junior high.
