Eighth Graders Celebrate Promotion to Upper School
The last day of school, Tuesday, June 13th, was marked by an important rite of passage, as Pacific Ridge eighth graders were promoted to high school in a formal yet lighthearted ceremony in the Athletic Center.
In addition to words of congratulations from Middle School Head Andy Wright and 8th-Grade Dean Kelly Clampett, a group of faculty members took turns addressing the rising 9th-grade students to offer bits of wisdom, humorous sentiments, and heartfelt wishes. Mission Awards were given to Middle School students who demonstrated a commitment to various aspects of the Pacific Ridge mission statement. Then, each student was individually recognized and crossed the stage to receive a diploma. Upper School, here they come!
