Saint Patrick Catholic School held its 124th Commencement Exercises at 7:00 P.M. on Monday, June 4, 2018 at Saint Patrick Catholic Church.
We called forth the 8th grade students to receive their diplomas. We recognized each graduate for meeting and exceeding the standards of the Archdiocese of Seattle and the requirements of our school. It is our most public ceremony for acknowledging the achievements of our graduating students, as well as honoring them for the many ways they have contributed to our community.
The Class of 2018 graduated 43 students. Over 70% graduated with a 3.5 GPA or above; nearly 90% will be heading to Catholic high schools including Bellarmine, O’Dea and Regis Jesuit in Aurora, Colorado; and for the first time five students will have completed Geometry allowing them to move into 2nd Year Algebra Honors in their high schools.
This class graduates students who are extremely gifted in the Arts from Band and Choir, the performing Arts and Fine Arts. These kids leave a legacy of creativity and beauty. Many of our graduated have been at SAint Patrick Catholic School from pre-K— they are know as “St. Pat Lifers”. Tthis class was strengthened by 12 outstanding students who entered in Middle School with one arriving just 3 months before the end of th school year.
We have great confidence in all of their futures and know whether they are Wilson Rams, Stadium Tigers, or Bellarmine Lions, they will always be Shamrocks at heart!
