On to first grade

Reese Jones shows her excitement after donning a graduation cap to mark her promotion to first grade during Pillow Academy’s drive-by graduation ceremony Friday for its 5-year-old kindergarten students. At right is Reese’s teacher, Lisa Pannell. Because of the coronavirus outbreak, the school had to modify its traditional celebration. Families drove up a student at a time so that the children could be presented by their teacher with a cap and a bucket, which included a diploma and some treats, while a recording of “Pomp and Circumstance” played in the background.
