We’ve been in San Antonio this week visiting our two kids in dental school and speaking at the FEAST Convention, but today we must book it back to Tyler in time for Benjamin’s graduation. He’ll be participating in our homeschool support group‘s cap and gown ceremony at 5 PM.
We had to miss the rehearsal yesterday, and one of his friends set up his “memory table” for him in his absence. These are very common at homeschool graduations. The graduates get to display any pictures and memorabilia from their high school years that are particularly meaningful to them.
Lots of students include with their display a page where guests can sign in and/or leave a message. Here’s the one our family usually uses:
I print it on cream card stock, then glue it into that child’s scrapbook once graduation is over.
If you prefer something less formal, here are a couple of other styles to choose from. Click on any of the three images to print that design.
These will print in black and white only, so you can liven them up by filling in the graphics using markers or colored pencils to match your school colors, or just print on colored card stock.
