Today was the last day of school for my kids. My son \"graduated\" 3rd grade and my daughter \"graduated\" 6th grade. No cap and gown, but in the spirit of the season, I thought it would be fun to make these easy graduation cupcakes. They were a huge hit. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
by Abby Koch-As the year is winding down, final projects are being turned in and the last events of the year at Morningside College act as benchmarks before finals. It is now a countdown until the Class of 2021 walks across the stage to collect their degree at graduation. Graduating seniors eagerly look at their collection of cords, the mortar board, and gown that they will soon wear.
Kindly mortars and gowns. Who are they really for.For a lot of children now they have seen preceding years using them so they will now expect to wear them. Yet is it really what the child wants. I have read several articles indicating (no research evidence) that rewarding children is important. However it should be in a way that is important to the child/children.I have just seen pictures of a kindy graduation and it looked more like a wedding with balloons (many) , ribbons round chairs, chairs organised in rows. Surely ask the children what they want. Let them be who they are in the moment, not some opportunity for parents to show off.Also consider the cost of all this. Many parents cannot afford to go over the top. Then the environmental effects. Helium is a problem in that it cannot be created, rubber balloons are not recyclable.And now some parents are booking limos for their kindy graduation. What will you reward them with at the next stepCelebrate their hard work, achievements to etc but do it for the child, not you.

Royals don't often do as the commoners do, but Princess Eugenie had the quintessential coming of age experience when she attended her graduation ceremony at Newcastle University in a cap and gown today.
Starting with this set of cookie cutters that I found online makes the shapes come to life. The cutters provide obvious cookie ideas. I used the graduation hat and diploma for this batch of graduation cookies and look forward to trying some of the other shapes in the package- the medal, the owl, and the graduation gown all have great possibilities too.

Most societies recognize the rite of passage, when a person enters a new stage in life. Marriage is a rite of passage, and graduation from high school or college is also a rite of passage. Most ceremonies honoring this new stage of life include rituals. The traditional graduation ceremony includes marching to Pomp and Circumstance No. 1 by Sir Edward Elgar, who inspired the music when he received an Honorary Doctor of Music degree at Yale in 1905. Princeton followed with the music in 1907. Soon, the tradition caught on throughout the country. The mortar board and gown have a long history, dating back to medieval clergy and European universities. In 1895, American institutes formed the Intercollegiate Commission, which standardized the academic dress. Today, students still march into the auditorium wearing the cap and gown and marching to Pomp and Circumstance.
Academic headwear, partticularly in the form of the square cap or mortar-board, is perhaps the most widely recognised symbol of educational achievement in the world.
