This has been a busy week, as far as holidays go! On May 9, we celebrated Victory Day, the holiday that commemorates the day the Soviet Army defeated the Nazis during WWII. It is one of the most important holidays here in Ukraine, and especially in my region of the country.
On Friday, we had our official graduation ceremony for our 11th graders! Traditionally, this ceremony is combined with the last day of the school, but because of the upcoming Euro Cup, the schedule has been adjusted.
On Saturday evening, we had the city-wide graduation ceremony in the center of town. This ceremony was to honor all the students who are graduating this year in Rovenky!
I hope you’re all doing well and Happy Mother’s Day (Jeff, Jon, this is your reminder)!
