Arcadia High School seniors, who donned their caps and gowns, went back to the future to their former elementary schools to do a graduation run to inspire the next generation of young people.
The extremely vocal and excited elementary school children at Camino Grove were thrilled to see the big seniors right before they head off to graduation and college. The elementary pupils made signs and high-fived the grads as they toured the school, twice. The seniors also visited with their former elementary teachers and shared some poignant moments.
