High school graduation parties are not a nationwide tradition. When I graduated from high school five years ago, I remember chatting about my party to our family friends in Arizona. I was astounded to learn that their son’s friends did not celebrate the occasion with a large gathering the year before—they hailed from Bloomington so they understood. Money is surely appreciated come graduation. Yet, the most memorable gifts I received were those that didn’t simply come in an envelope, but had a little thought put into them. I appreciated the thoughtfulness of the gesture.
We understand that finding fun, unique and practical gifts can be challenging. So we turned to those who know best—graduates. In South West Metro Magazine’s April issue, three of our Prep Elite students suggest out of the box gifts. Congrats grads!
