Magnolia graduates celebrated the first of many educational milestones to come with a spectacular graduation ceremony. Teachers, children and their families gathered in amazement to witness the flying kung-fu monks of Shaolin Cultural Center put on a performance of strength and grace. The amazing show displayed the monks’ wide skill set and served as a reminder to the graduates of what can be achieved with focus and determination in the right environment.
Classes then showed their gratitude with performancesof their own of dance, song and poetry. Next, their names were individuallycalled out and each student received their diploma to roaring applause andcheer (even those students currently abroad, who joined the graduationdigitally through ClassIn video chat). It was a bittersweet event, marked byproud tears in the eyes of parents and teachers as they watched the childrenprepare to leave the green gates of Magnolia. Just like the arrow of the monk’slongbow, the children will soar on to reach their targets. Achieving theirgoals will require concentration and dedication, but they’re well prepared fortheir next steps thanks to their caring instructors and community here atschool.
We have high hopes for the Class of 2020! May you all find success and happiness in the years to come! Thank you for all the wonderful memories and experiences we shared at Magnolia Kindergarten!
