The Owls Leave the Nest

Burris Graduation 2011


As Class President, Kate lead the
 procession into graduation.


We listened to Kate's speech,
"We are Family," and her parents wept.


The turning of the tassels.

Along with the joy is the sadness
of saying good bye to all of these kids
that were part of our family for
Harry Potter parties and birthdays
or just to hang out.  We have watched
them grow into mature men and women
and wish them well in their next step in life.


Our friend Charles from France,
he got to wear an American cap &
 gown, they don't do that in France.

Congratulations Graduates!
