Cheers erupted as Langley Secondary grads entered the atrium of HD Stafford Middle School on June 16.

Grads came dressed in their graduation regalia and high five’d Stafford students who lined the hallways throughout the school. Music blasted through the school speakers as they made their journey.

The LSS Grad Walk is a tradition that started a few years ago. It gives grads the opportunity to revisit the schools they grew up attending. This included HD Stafford, their middle school, and various elementary schools, including James Hill Elementary and Simonds. There were six buses loaded with grads, who came brimming with excitement.

Elementary students at James Hill greeted the grads with music and high fives as well. Many of the students also made banners and signs congratulating the grads.

It was an encouraging event for all students involved as many grads got to visit with past teachers and bonded with fellow students. District administration was also present to pass on their congratulations with warm handshakes and encouragement.

To end the day, students returned to LSS, to be greeted by further cheers from fellow students. They gathered in the castle lobby where music was blasting. There was dancing, singing, and a sharing of stories.

According to principal Marcello Moino, the feeling of the room was magical that it felt like it had come straight out of a Disney musical.
