More than 100 students at the Pettis County Early Childhood Cooperative put on their caps and gown Wednesday for graduation ceremonies for both the morning and afternoon programs.

As they made their way from their classrooms to the gym at Sedalia Middle School, which also is home to the co-op, the graduates got high fives from SMS students and staff members.

After reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and singing the songs "Have You Ever Gone a Fishin;" and "Baby Fish," the students received their graduation certificates from Principal Grace Kendrick.
