Proud families share their joy in person and on social media

When May and June come round, so does the anticipation and excitement for graduation. Whether you’re a fifth grader transitioning to middle school, or a high school senior or college student preparing to accept your diploma, you know that family and friends are proud and rooting for you!

Photos show up on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media. Graduations are covered by local newspapers. An online community Patch may capture this moving and memorable event.

On Facebook, parents, family members, the graduates themselves, college bookstores and others share their photos and the emotion of the big day! Everyone is super proud.

There’s triumph! At the moving up ceremony from 5th to 6th grade, with certificate in hand!

“…added 6 new photos to the album: 5th Grade Graduation.”
