Our eighth-grade students celebrated their final Saint John Bosco Catholic School Mass today along with their consecration to Mary. It was a beautiful and fitting end to their SJB career. At the end of the day, the entire student body lined a pathway throughout our courtyard and cheered while parents gathered for our traditional “clap-out.” It was a grand send-off for the eighth graders who exited our front school gates for the final time as SJB students.
A few hours later we will celebrate these same students at the annual Eighth Grade Awards Banquet and Dance. It will be a festive evening at the Foothills Golf Club highlighting the achievements of these students during their years at St. John Bosco.
The capstone is the Graduation Mass and Commencement Ceremony next Wednesday, May 18 at 6:00 PM in the Saint John Bosco School courtyard. These celebrations bring closure to the students’ foundational years at SJB and they look forward to their next chapter as high school students. I am so proud of each graduate; I know that they will do well and I wish them many blessings!
