It’s that time of year again.
Over the next few weeks, millions of students will celebrate new milestones in their K-12 education.
From high school graduation to middle schoolers moving on to high school to elementary students taking the leap to a new grade level, it’s a time for both celebration and nervous excitement about what lies ahead.
Many school districts have already had their last day of classes and have celebrated the hard work of students and faculty over the past school year–and many are sharing their experiences online.
