8th grade reverse farewell parade

The 8th grade Class of 2024 participated in a farewell reverse parade to commemorate and say goodbye to their middle school years. Students decorated their parents’ cars and circled the campus traffic loop after receiving a gift bag from Principal Elsworth and Middle School Student Council adviser, Chad Jorgensen.

“Thank you to everyone for demonstrating such wonderful school spirit,” said Principal Elsworth. “While it wasn’t the traditional eighth grade dinner dance, the parade was still a really great celebration of all the students have accomplished through elementary and middle school.”
