Eight little five-year olds received their diplomas and tossed their sailor hats into the air as they “graduated” from Anchor Center for Blind Children’s preschool program on June 12. Their happy voices sang their songs including the Hokey Pokey ending with a boisterous “Hot Diggity Dawg!!” Claire practiced the words to the Bookworm Song so often that on the day of the performance, she had a sore throat! Her parents confirmed that they, too, knew every word sung by Claire day and night.
Each child marched down the aisle independently including Izzie who, with help, pedaled his tricycle. Maria couldn't wait to grab her diploma and Damien ran down as fast as he could and his eagerness brought laughter from all. Sundka enthusiastically smiled and sang but her bright cheer of “Hot Diggity Dawg” brought down the house.
We wish each of these children Happy Sails into their future.
