Elk River High School seniors visited their respective elementary schools in Elk River, be it Lincoln, Parker, Meadowvale, Twin Lakes or St. Andrew’s Catholic School, during their last week of school in what has quickly become a treasured tradition. Students and staff line the hallways to congratulate the graduating seniors. In addition to signs prepared by students, high fives and fist bumps, there are few hugs along parade route. Elk River High School Class of 2019 graduated on June 7 inside the high school gymnasium.

Students who attended Lincoln and Parker elementary schools as well as St. Andrew’s walked to the schools. The rest took a bus.

Signs created by students to congratulate seniors on their graduation were plentiful, and the students who made them were eager to show them off. The graduation walk was the third one after a school guidance counselor gleaned the idea from a Facebook post in 2017.
