Dressed in white robes with royal blue MEA shawls, the Macon East kindergarten class processional didn’t leave a dry eye among the audience of parents and grandparents.  Their commencement ceremony included poems, songs, a touching slide show, and the presentation of diplomas.  Surprised by the cheers and a gift from their 6th grade buddies, the young students proudly exited the auditorium as first graders.

Following the kindergarten program, the 6th grade students took the stage for the final time as lower school students.  Along with songs they had performed at the AISA Choral Festival and the Macon East Alma Mater, several students shared essays they had written about their school and family.  As Mr. Lott, headmaster, presented their diplomas and academic awards, the students were excitedly promoted to junior high.
