Ellensburg High School grads want to decorate caps

ELLENSBURG — Some students at Ellensburg High School are circulating a petition asking administrators to allow them to decorate their mortar board caps at graduation.
The Daily Record reports they also demonstrated recently, carrying signs that said “Lift the EHS cap decorating ban,” and “Honk if you support creativity.”
Principal Jeff Ellersick says high school graduation is a ceremony “like a wedding or baptism situation” and he doesn’t want anything to draw attention from the recognition.
Ellensburg students who show up in a decorated cap at the June 6 graduation will have their diplomas held until they swap for a clean cap.
