It was a proud day for parents at Cirrus Academy in Macon as kindergarteners got a chance to walk the stage and turn their tassels.

They are the first graduating class at the charter school which opened last fall.

Some kids we spoke to said they learned a lot in their first year of school, everything from how to make friends to learning how to cross the street safely.

The principal, Dr. Gail Fowler, says if you look at this graduating class, you know the school has a bright future.

"All of our 2017 kindergarten graduates are an awesome group of young students who are thriving and eager to learn and are indeed shining stars," said Fowler.

Cirrus is holding three more graduations next week for elementary and middle school kids.
