About 200 Los Fresnos High School seniors who are about to graduate paid a visit to the elementary schools they attended in the first Graduate Day.

About 700 of the 730 graduates were at LFHS for the annual Panoramic Photo Day, dressed in graduation regalia. From there, more than one-fourth of them boarded buses bound for the nine elementary schools in the Los Fresnos CISD.

Their mission: to visit the elementary schools they attended as young children, and to visit with the students at the schools who attend now.

Several schools held parades around the school as students came out onto the hallways. “Pomp and Circumstance” was played over the school loudspeakers at Laureles Elementary School.

At Palmer-Laakso Elementary, graduates broke into small groups to visit classrooms. Some of graduates visited teachers who they had many years ago, but this time, they were all grown up.

Las Yescas Elementary principal Oscar de la Rosa was the only sitting principal of the nine who was principal when the new graduates were in Kindergarten.

At Rancho Verde Elementary and Dora Romero Elementary, graduates only attended those schools for 2-4 years because they opened in 2008 and 2010, respectively.

At Olmito Elementary, students had inflatable bouncers and slides as the last day of school nears. Some graduates went down the slide in their regalia.
