ELLENSBURG, Wash. (AP) - 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 (https://bit.ly/1tu7gBV ) 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.
