The Perfect Graduation Present

posted on Monday, April 1, 2019 in  Parent Newsletter

After 17 or 18 years, your student has made it to the finish line. They may have prayed for its quick delivery, swift arrival, and counted down the days, and now (finally) graduation is on the horizon. Perhaps as a guardian you are feeling excited and overwhelmed, jubilant but nostalgic, or maybe you are even dreading the occasion. However, graduation is imminent and a major milestone in your young person’s life. College is around corner, making sure all the loose ends are tied up, but one thing may be overlooked-the perfect graduation gift!

Your student may receive a myriad of things for graduation. Money is always an excellent option, and if you reach for the stars, a car will make any student jump for joy. But let’s be realistic. Most students will not be getting a car and money will probably be spent on activities for the summer or social events. While much less flashy and exciting, cleaning products are essential. Toilet paper, paper towels, and Lysol wipes are things every college bound student can use and will overlook. Nothing says Happy Graduation like gifts for the real world! Rest easy knowing your student is set and ready to embark on their new journey. And bonus! You won’t mind going to their place since you know how tidy it will be! Congratulations on this accomplishment, and please reach out to the staff at Hawkeye Community College over the summer with any questions.
