The Moving Up Breakfast for my Seminary students is a wonderful tradition.
Students are seated at tables by grade.
At the end of the breakfast, the Seniors march out the door with everyone cheering for them. I give the Seniors their Scriptures, Journals, and any other supplies they have used during the year. (and I cry)
Once the Seniors table is empty, the other students "move up" to their next grade table.
We invite the incoming Freshmen and the current students give them advice on how to prepare for Seminary. Most of the advice involves sleep, getting enough sleep, going to be early, etc. along with some sweet testimonies of the blessings of Seminary.
The 8th graders love moving up to the Freshmen table. This builds their excitement for starting Seminary and introduces them to the morning routine in a fun way.
