With graduation a little under a month away, seniors received their caps and gowns on April 24 during lunch. Throughout the years, most graduates have continued the tradition of decorating their caps for their big day. Graduation caps can reflect the students’ personalities and creativity. In the past, students have decorated their caps simply by painting them, putting quotes on them, placing pictures on them, and using more  creative ideas.
