KCres: CHS Has Graduation Rules

KCRes: We received a 6 page newsletter from CHS yesterday about graduation and the run-up to it. Not long to go now for our seniors. Upon closer inspection though it is about 1 page on the run-up, and 5 pages on what to wear and how to behave (ok, maybe a slight exaggeration). Any misdemeanor will see you up before the school board to plead for your diploma. Apparently the tassel must be worn to the left, except for when you are being photographed when it must be worn to the right. Or maybe it's the other way around. It can be summarized by 'All behave and look the same or else'. Nice way to finish high school. (SR file photo of CHS graduation by Jesse Tinsley)

DFO: Seems like only yesterday that my kids were graduating from high school here -- Junior in 1997 from Coeur d'Alene High and Amy Dearest in 2004 from Lake City High. Then, it doesn't seem that long ago when I was graduating from Gridley (Calif.) High in 1967. Then there were the college graduations. And I'll be attending another in June when Amy Dearest graduates with a masters in family counseling. Graduations are fun family occasions.

Question: How many graduations have you been to?
