High School Grads Return to their Elementary School to Offer Advice and Share Plans

Sunnyland Elementary School students had some special visitors during the last week of school. Recent high school graduates returned to Sunnyland, where they attended elementary school, to celebrate their graduation, share future plans and provide advice to the students. The graduates’ advice included encouragement to work hard and have fun and to not hang on to challenges but instead hang on to what you learn from those challenges.

The high school grads also named teachers who had made an impact on them and why. Many of the students received scholarships to college and this information was also shared during the assembly. The event is intended to inspire young students and remind them of what they can achieve when they reach the end of their K-12 experience.
