Baccalaureate is Wednesday evening. Graduates aren’t required to go to Baccalaureate, but most of them do anyway. It’s not school sponsored. The Brandon Valley Ministerial Association sponsors it, and it is a religious service.
Did you go to your Baccalaureate? Why or why not?
Will your graduate participate? Why or why not?
Some people might be very grateful to the ministerial association for sponsoring this event, which blesses the graduates and gives them a Christian farewell from high school.
Others may think that even though it’s optional and not school-sponsored, it’s still a waste of time or even worse, an insult to other religions.
What are your thoughts?
