Following our last school Mass of the year, Principal Sahadi and Vice-Principal Morelli recognized students for academic achievement, leadership, good character, community service, and citizenship with end-of-year awards and scholarships. Certificates were awarded for fourth quarter Principal’s List and Honor Roll. Two classes, eighth and first, were heralded for each contributing over 2,000 food items during the Lenten Food Drive. Mr. Sahadi then ceremonially promoted each class to the next grade. We are proud of these students and happy to promote their accomplishments.

Five named scholarships were also awarded.
