Mandan Preschoolers Graduate

Posted: Updated:
More than 80 little graduation caps and diplomas were given out to Mandan West River Head Start preschoolers this morning.

Students first performed a few songs to show off their singing and dancing skills, and then they each walked down the isle for their diploma.

Teachers say both parents and students have been looking forward to this big event.

"We have to celebrate the victories the kids have. People don't realize how hard it is to be a little kid. A pat on the back is a good thing and it's going to really help them as they grow and go into school," says West River Head Start director Joey Kolosky.

The director also says the school's graduation rate of preschoolers to kindergarten is 97 percent.
