WEST ORANGE, NJ - As the countdown to graduation nears, graduating seniors visited their elementary schools on June 13 to be recognized by current students with "clap-outs."

The seniors walked through the halls of their old schools and were cheered on by students and teachers as they passed through.

The visit was not only fun for the seniors, but for staff as well, many of whom had the seniors as elementary students. The current elementary school students could look up to their older counterparts and imagine that one day, that would be them.

The events were so successful that it is hoped that they become an annual tradition at all West Orange Elementary Schools.
