Brazilian School Graduation
We are an American family of seven,
living, working and loving Brazil. Welcome to the adventures of Our Brazilian Life. Our first grader is graduating. We are at her graduation. It’s a special day. She’s been practicing this performance all
week so they’ve been out on summer break and she still came to school every day
to work on two different performances. She’s super excited. We’re super proud of
her. Congratulations Maísa! Congratulations Maísa! We know you worked hard. All right, we are behind the scenes of Maísa’s graduation. How do you feel on your big day? I feel good. How do you feel about your performance? It was awesome! And, we’re going to sing today and when we sing, there’s gonna be a music and there’s gonna be a
part of the music that we’re all gonna yell these words out super loud. And tell us about your mermaid
performance. So my mermaid performance… we all, all the girls put their mermaid
suits on and all the boys put hunter suits on and we all danced. I had a princess one too that I loved.
It was awesome! We’re at Maísa’s graduation and we’re
super proud of her. We’re really excited for her but on the other hand as
parents of five kids, kids need to be recognized for all of their hard work
but a graduation from first grade? I think it’s a little over the top.
I mean she’s just going to the second grade. It’s the only grade that does it.
No other grades are having big graduations like this.
You know, I’m happy for her. We’re totally here to support her, but I think
sometimes these events are a little over the top and it cost R$500 to do it. I
think it’ll be worth it. It’s something she’s proud of. She works really hard so
we’re here supporting her, giving her lots of love but you know, I don’t know. I
think when you move from the first grade to the second grade you get a big high
five like everyone else and you get back to work.
