What do you think of graduation ceremonies for lower grades?

Graduation ceremonies should only be for successful completion of all 12 grades. A continuation dance, or event for moving from elementary to middle; middle to HS is fine, but not a ceremony.

I agree the accomplishemnt is its own reward. I never got a "graduation" until HS, but I was still pretty proud of my accomplishements.

A move up ceremony is wonderful, but the caps and gowns should be reserved for high school and college. At our school, K gets a ceremony, 8th grade gets a "grad" with suits but no caps and gowns, and HS get a cap and gown.

No "graduation" for kids below HS level. OK, have an event, but absolutely no caps and gowns. Real graduation is a genuine accomplishment, not just moving to the next grade. Don't diminish its value by treating 5-year-olds like mini adults.

I think they are important for the child as well as the parent to remember and celebrate their progress

At first I was against it but my daughter's preschool just had a very sweet graduation for the kids moving on to kinder next year. You should have seen how proud these little guys looked!
