Awards Day and Graduation: The main theme of this event is an expression of honor to our students. Each student receives an award for a quality that he or she has developed during the school year. It takes courage and maturity for a student to stand in front of friends and family and listen to stories about themselves and receive an award for some sort of goodness in themselves. Also at this event, graduating seniors present a talk and receive their diplomas. Parents , family, and community members have expressed that this event is essential to understanding what our school is all about.
