This morning the eighth graders and their guests gathered in the gym for the ring ceremony, marking the first big event of the eighth-grade year. The ceremony began with a beautiful invocation, written by Mrs. Elizabeth Fitzpatrick and delivered by Chelsea Nguyen. Daniel Tran and John Tran led the students and audience in “The Pledge of Allegiance.”
Jennifer Tran, Clendon J. Butera Scholarship recipient for 2017 – 2018, shared a reflection on the Class of 2018’s time at Lake Castle with a look back on their years of accomplishments and memories. Mrs. Jane McGovern addressed the class and spoke about the importance of showing leadership and appreciating the sacrifices their parents have made to give them private education.
Following the ceremony, the students shared refreshments with their guests and enjoyed taking many photos and turning one another’s rings. Congratulations, Class of 2018!
