Nearly 70 students recently graduated from Hannibal Central School District’s Universal Pre-Kindergarten program.
Guests filled the Fairley Elementary School gymnasium for the celebration, which featured performances of “Rise and Shine,” “The Alphabet Song,” “The Hokey Pokey,” “Mother Gooney Bird,” and “Skinnamarinkydinkydink.”
A slideshow of photographs from throughout the 2015-216 school year played in the background as Pre-K teacher Deb Musa, Pre-K teacher Kim Przychodzen, teacher assistant Kelly Kingsley and monitor Morgan McMillen congratulated each student as they received their diploma.
Principal Jody Musa thanked parents and guests for their support of the program throughout the year.
“We are excited to bring them into our kindergarten program in the fall,” he said.
Both Musa and Przychodzen said the students learned to write, developed reading skills and made friends, all of which provided them with a solid foundation to begin elementary school in September.
Students and their guests enjoyed refreshments, conversation and group photographs after the ceremony.
