Sacred Heart Church was filled with family and friends on June 20 to celebrate this year’s 21 graduating students from Sacred Heart School.
Masters of ceremonies Amanda Scott and Kiana Barker led the graduation and awards ceremony.
The valedictory address was delivered by Eric Goretzki.
Vice-Principal Kim Savoie said this year’s graduating group has the tools to help them succeed down the road.
“I think they’re a very versatile, unique group of individuals that have many gifts that are going to help them succeed in the future,” she said.
Savoie expressed heartfelt excitement for the students, especially since she saw most of them work their way up from kindergarten.
“It’s pretty exciting because I’ve seen the majority of them start in our kindergarten program. It’s exciting because they’re a part of our school community and family,” Savoie concluded.
This year’s graduates are Isabelle Allen, Kiana Barker, Kailey Barnes, Ruth Broderick, Danielle Colucci, Charles Darling, Rowan Daniels, Ayden Favot, Eric Goretzki, Walter Head, Cruz Kingston, Marcus Kowtiash, Chloe Lavallee, Mathew Linden, Faye Mesich, Gavyn Otto, Joshua Rice, Xander Richards, Amanda Scott, Kylee Scott, and Alyssa Vincent.
