Wausau West Graduates Visit Maine for a Final Farewell

Wausau West graduates walked the hall of Maine Elementary in the graduation caps. It was so fun to see students who once attended Maine as seniors getting ready to go off into the world! Maine students made posters and cheered the graduates on as they came through the building. We even took a picture of the kindergartners posing with the seniors. Congratulations graduates; we're so proud of you!
