Is It Really Graduating?

When a child moves from 5th grade to 6th grade is it really necessary to have a graduation party?  I don’t think so.  My wife has been planning on having a “graduation” party for our daughter and some of her friends.  Going from 8th grade to 9th grade is one thing, but 5th grade is not necessary as far as I am concerned.

She asked me about doing this, and I told her to do whatever she wants because she does anyway.  Why ask if you aren’t going to listen to my answer.  She then told me that she was going to look for some invitations similar to the graduation announcements that she ran into when she was searching for invitations.

A small get together is ok as far as I am concerned at this point, but invitations?  Let’s not get carried away.

  1. Graduation includes the bestowing of a degree. Toms river does not do this to thie best of my knowledge although it used to give certificates of completing. Technical but different. leaving one school for another is a commencement,a beginning. Parties are celebrations up to the giver and the giver’s choice for time and place.It is up to the parent, the times, and the total situation as to if a gathering for classmates, friends, and/or family happens,
