One of Atticus' biggest goals was to make it to 8th grade graduation and his care team made sure it happened!
His surgery was May 22, his surgeon cleared him for chemo June 1, his graduation was June 7, and the Randall team scheduled him for his chemo at 9am on June 9! We are so grateful for our team and the research that shows how important life events are to sick kids and making sure they are still able to take part in them.
At school, 8th grade graduation is in the evening, and the 7th graders set it up, serve the food, decorate. It's always a lovely evening with remembering and honoring the eighth graders. Then, on the last day of school, there is the Rose Ceremony, the first graders honor the eighth graders by giving them a rose.
Here are the photos from the graduation on the evening of June 7.
