Allow decorated caps at Champlin Park High School's graduation ceremony.

At Champlin Park High School, the class of 2017 is instructed to not decorate their caps that they will wear at graduation. Their explanation is that they want the class to be seen as one, and that the graduation ceremony is "not about the individual".
Sadly, this goes against so many of the things we as students are taught. We are told day to day that we are unique individuals, and that high school is a place for us to change and find out who we are. For many, Champlin Park is the place where they're able to express themselves in ways they can't in other places. So when we hear this decision being made, it's a huge blow.
You can walk into any business, see the uniform all the employees wear, and identify them as being one group; as being "the same". But it's the faces of these people that make them unique; make them stand out. And since our loved ones won't be able to see our faces from the seats at Mariucci Arena on June 4th, let our gowns be our uniform, and let our caps be our faces.
