8th Grade Graduation, June 8

Save the date for Eighth Grade Graduation! The Class of 2013, along with their hardworking teacher, Mr. Eichenlaub, will be sending out invitations this spring to the event which will take place at the Strom Auditorium on Saturday, June 8, 2013.

Graduation is the culminating moment of each student’s time at Ashwood. It is the students’ last chance to share their talents with and be recognized by our school community. It is one last opportunity for the Eighth Graders to give to their community through performance and for our community to honor their growth and achievements.

At Ashwood, graduation is is seen as a significant moment for the whole community: for the younger children who are inspired by the Eighth Graders and who look forward to their own graduation, for the teachers who have all had a hand in their education, for the parents of children in other grades who have watched and helped the Eighth Graders grow through the years.

Our hope is that all parents and friends of Ashwood will also join us. It truly is a wonderful event!
