Every kid looks for their big day and has their family tradition of what they will do when a kid graduates from high school. These traditions include painting or decorating hats, wearing leis or anything else.

However, this year things at Hillcrest are being changed and some of these traditions are being restricted from being in graduation. Some of the restrictions include, not being able to decorate your hat, not being about to wear anything outside your gown, such as a lei or necklace and one thing students are specifically frustrated about, there will be no hat throwing at graduation.

What is leading to a lot of frustration from the student body about the regulations is the idea that none of these changes are getting real reasons behind them other than in the eyes of a student, to kill the fun.

Graduation is Tuesday June 6 and while many students and parents feel they can ignore the new policies and still get into the graduation, there will be security at the entrances checking all the graduates and making sure their outfits are up to par.

A problem with the restriction of things going over the gown is that a lot of families that is part of their culture to have that because many families come from Polynesian background and restricting that is restricting their culture.

Overall, seniors have worked hard for this day and are looking forward to their big day on June 6.
