Cristo Rey Secundaria Graduation (and Kindergarten)

Cristo Rey Secundaria (junior high) held the graduation ceremony Thursday, June 29, 2017 with 14 graduates.  The public school Kindergarten graduates were also celebrated. The secundaria was established last year so this was their first graduating class.  The photo above is of Fred Uriarte and Karla Dianey Sanchez Lopez who is one of the eight new KKIS Scholarship winners beginning high school next fall. The students waited and waited in the hot afternoon sun.

The event began with Mexican flag presenters  passing the flag to the next generation of students.

Preschool and Kindergarten students entertained the crowd of parents and well wishers with songs and dances.

KKIS representative helped distribute diplomas to all the students. A special person in their lives (a padrino or madrina) walked them to our table where they were congratulated.
