Celebrating 2021 Cougar Kinder Graduates

Kindergarten graduation

Congratulations to the 2021 Dell City School kindergarten graduates – Makenzie Alvord, Magdalena Coto, Marlene Reyes, Allison Rodriguez and Elisa Rodriguez – who celebrated their graduation in Cougar Gym May 26! It was a wonderful event. In addition to traditional commencement features – a processional to “Pomp and Circumstance,” the presentation of diplomas – there was a dance performance by the students and a video highlighting the class. The students led attendees in the pledge of allegiance and Texas pledge, and kinder grad Makenzie Alvord delivered a speech. And there were inspiring, and emotional, words from kindergarten teacher Elsa McCray, Adriana Sanchez and Supt. Carlos A. Contreras.

A big thanks to those who made this special event happen – and to everyone who attended! We're grateful to Ms. McCray for the time and planning she put into the event – and to the parents – particularly Brenda Guerola and Estela Velarde – who helped decorate the gym and stage so beautifully.

We're excited to see these students – the high-school Class of 2033 – as they develop and grow!
