On Friday, May 25th, HSAY celebrated our 8th grade class as they move on to high school. Students walked down the aisle in their caps & gowns in front of all of their families and friends. 4th grader A’mara Robinson sang HSAY’s 2017-2018 theme song – “The Champion” by Carrie Underwood. Class valedictorian Naudia Beck gave the student commencement address. Ms. Santos read “The North Star” by Peter H. Reynolds, which is a story about a child figuring out his journey through life. Then, several teachers read one wish that they had for our 8th graders. Next, it was time for our students to receive their diplomas and walk down the aisle to “Pomp & Circumstance.”
We want to thank our 8th graders for being leaders and role models for our younger students. We will miss each one of you, but we look forward to hearing all about the wonderful things you all will do in the future. Best of luck in high school and beyond! You will always be part of the Horizon family!
