Washington Island graduation a community celebration

While family and friends filled gymnasiums over the weekend for commencement ceremonies in Door and Kewaunee counties, the whole community is expected to show up for the Washington Island School graduation. Part of the reason is because of the size of the graduating classes of the school, which sits at three this year. A community dinner, a presentation of quilts to the graduates, and a celebratory dance are just as part of the commencement day as the diploma itself. Michelle Kanipes will see her first graduation ceremony as the school’s principal and is excited to see the journey the senior class will take.

Molly McGrane, Tiffany Wacaser, and Michael Cornell will receive their diplomas on June 7th at 6 p.m. at Washington Island School.
