As we get closer to the last day of school, our hearts are stirred by the inevitability of 8th grade graduation. It is truly a sentimental journey as we observe our 8th graders, this small but mighty group of eleven, become more and more eager to step into the future.
The class of 2018 has seen plenty of changes over the past 10 years. Out of the eleven, two joined Linton Hall School way back in PreK; four of them joined us in Kindergarten; two of the students joined in 1st grade; then we added one student each year in 5th grade, 6th grade and 7th grade. As each new student came along, they were always welcomed by the class with enthusiasm and kindness. I’m sure the entire class would say they feel like they have all been together forever!
The class of 2018 is hard working and talented. They are math scholars and singers, swimmers and writers, dancers and musicians, golfers and volleyball, soccer and basketball players! They are a class of leaders, stewards, and doers. Each and every one of them deserves a shout out as they move on to high school.
Out of the eleven, three of our 8th graders have received scholarships from Highland School. Paul the VI Catholic High School is happy to welcome two of our 8th graders, one of whom was selected for the PVI Fine Arts program. Our county high schools are grateful to have six of our 8th graders gracing their halls for the next four years, with the majority of them going into the high schools’ respective advanced academic programs.
Congratulations to the Linton Hall School Class of 2018! Our blessings and love follow you as your journey continues to high school. Take your love of God, the strength of your gifts, and the confidence of your faith as you embrace the challenges and hope of your future.
