MIS Graduation took place on June 7th, 2011 at 10:30 am.  It was our first commencement and I felt it ran fairly smoothly considering all the huff and puffing we did to get it all together.  In Mongolia High School only goes till 11th grade.  So our "3" graduates finished 11th grade here at MIS while their other grades were completed in other schools.  All of the kids at MIS are Korean missionary kids whose parents are serving somewhere here in Ulaanbaatar.  They've had quite a time at this school facing many obstacles and frustrations but as this year progressed things got better and better. 

Here are some pictures of our graduates.
