Graduating seniors from South Side High School put on their green caps and gowns today for school seniors’ traditional Ivy Day walk around the school, 3601 S. Calhoun St.

Today is the last day of classes in the Fort Wayne Community Schools district.

Led by the South Side band, graduating seniors walked from in front of the school’s Helen P. Brown Natatorium south on Calhoun Street to Oakdale Drive, where they turned east to go back to the school.

Fort Wayne Community Schools Superintendent Wendy Robinson, wearing a green jacket, joined Principal Carlton Mable and other staff to help lead the students’ procession.
