The graduates entered the church while "Pomp and Circumstance" played. The invocation was given by Evan Turner's grandfather, the Rev. Clifton Hodges, Beulah Baptist Church, Richland.

The children recited many things they learned including, "We All Live in the Universe", "The United States," "Do You Remember," "Going Up," "Education/Graduation," and "Thank You." Each student received a diploma and flower for their family. Pam Moreland presented the class of 2013 to those in attendance. The children finished the program by singing "Oh, This is Graduation Day" and "Adio's, Amigos!"
