Celebrating Student Milestones

When May arrives, it brings more than spring blooms and warmer weather – it marks a season of transition and celebration as graduation and farewell ceremonies begin. We are so proud of each student who is graduating or moving on from their elementary or middle schools. As you step into the next chapter of your lives, be courageous in pursuing your passions and stay open to new opportunities. Congratulations!
