Future Grads Cheer on the Class of 2017

Senior Walks through the halls of elementary and middle schools are becoming popular trends among APS high schools and others across the nation.

Just before they walked across the stage for their high school diploma, many APS seniors in full graduation regalia walked the halls of elementary and middle schools, cheered by former teachers and school staff and inspiring future high school graduates.

Many of them once attended the neighborhood elementary and middle schools where they visited, high-fiving younger students who sang and chanted and waved personalized posters for the soon-to-be grads.

Participating high schools include Albuquerque High, Manzano, Del Norte, La Cueva, Highland and Rio Grande.

On Friday, May 12, Albuquerque High seniors went to Jefferson Middle School and East San Jose and Eugene Field elementaries. 

Also on Friday, La Cueva visited E.G. Ross Elementary and Dennis Chavez Elementary, where they stopped by fifth-grade classrooms to share their plans after graduation.

Manzano students from the East Mountains visited A. Montoya Elementary on Monday. 

The Highland Hornets are heading to Emerson Elementary at 1 p.m. Thursday.

The Rio Grande seniors are participating in Visiting Raven Day when they plan to visit all seven of the high school’s feeder schools beginning with Adobe Acres Elementary at 7:45 a.m. and ending at Ernie Pyle Middle School at 12:30 p.m. Other schools along the route include Barcelona, Navajo, Pajarito, Los Padillas elementaries and Polk Middle School.

After the Knights honors assembly (which starts at 10 a.m.), the Del Norte seniors will walk in full regalia across the bridge over Montgomery Boulevard to Governor Bent Elementary School. Del Norte will be the final APS Class of 2017 class to graduate.
