At the beginning of each school year, our 1st and 12th graders are paired up as special friends. The 12th graders welcome the 1st graders with a white rose in the fall and the 1st graders see the 12th graders off with a red rose at the end of the school year. Throughout the year, the pairs connect in various ways.

Like so many things, the Rose Ceremony looked different this year, but the spirit of connection and the celebration of the cycle of new beginnings and endings (that are also new beginnings) lives on. Thank you to the Faculty and Staff that found creative ways to carry on this meaningful tradition.
