Members of the 8th grade choir performed “How Far I’ll Go” before several awards were handed out and students recognized for their middle school achievements. The class role was then called as each member received a medallion and walked across the stage at the high school.
A final slideshow with each student and a favorite quote or saying was shown as the class and their guests watched.
