Graduation season has begun.
This is a busy week in Big Bear with graduation, promotion and celebration ceremonies throughout the Valley at Bear Valley schools. From kindergarten "graduation" events to the Big Bear High School graduation ceremony set for June 14, students and their families are celebrating the end of the school year — and the beginning of summer and the next journey.
Several events have taken place already, and June 12 marks the beginning of the middle and high school ceremonies. Elementary schools will also be celebrating sixth-graders who will move to Big Bear Middle School next year, as well as fifth-graders who will be moving to the middle school next year as well under a new configuration.
The Big Bear Middle School promotion ceremony is June 12, Chautauqua High School on June 13 and Big Bear High School on June 14.
