Graduation and beyond
The Children’s Room is proud of our graduating seniors.
We’re proud of our graduating seniors and appreciate all that you have shared! We also recognize that the past year might have felt quite different than usual and your senior year may not have been what you imagined…
AND we feel that you deserve every ounce of credit.
Graduation is a big deal, and we are excited for you & celebrate ALL your achievements.
We also want to send you off knowing that you still have a lot of support.
