Here are a few highlights of the 8th Grade Recognition Ceremony. Every year the teachers create a beautiful experience for the students including a social, end of the year traditions and a slideshow of memories.
Dr. Cox returned from his retirement to give his good wishes to the students as they lined up for the ceremony.

Students wrote this poem themselves and recited it during the ceremony. Beatiful show of unity and a great literary and scientific references, too! Those students really know their curriculum- they are ready for high school thanks to the 8th grade team!
