Victory lap - Teachers and staff members at the Hinsdale Middle School hosted a graduation parade for eighth-graders Monday afternoon. Dozens of cars with graduates popping out of the sun roofs or waving from the back seats passed by teachers, who stood along Third Street with signs shouting, clapping and cheering for the kids. With music playing and a bubble machine, the teachers and staff did their best to make the parade fun for the graduates. Ryann Knapp made a sign of her own thanking the teachers.
