Graduation and beyond
The Children’s Room is proud of our graduating seniors.
We recognize that the past few months might have felt quite different than usual, and graduation may not have been precisely the occasion they imagined. We feel that our seniors deserve every ounce of credit! Graduation is a big deal, and we are excited for them and celebrate ALL of their achievements! We also want to send them off, knowing that they still have a lot of support!
Take a look at the many different (free) ways seniors and young adults can continue to connect with others who have had similar experiences:
