High school graduation is a day us seniors are excited for our whole lives. We have work 12 long, hard years to get to where we are about to be in 3 short months. This is supposed to be our day to celebrate our achievements and accomplishments through the years. Students have been asking our administrators for years to let us decorate our caps for graduation and they have said the same thing “we can’t be for sure that a student will not put something inappropriate”. We have asked if there’s a way to get some teachers or even students to help monitor what is on the caps before we go on stage but they said “We don’t want to have to do that on graduation.” We have been told that we are being selfish and graduation is not the day to stand out or look like the “derby”. As a student who has lost two siblings and won’t be able to have them with me. I want to be able to decorate my cap for them in order to feel like they are right there with me without being called selfish. I have been taught throughout my whole life to fight for what I believe in and this exactly what I am going to do. Please sign this petition to help our 175 seniors and many generations to come to be able to express themselves on one of the most exciting days of our lives.
