Congratulations to the St. John's Parish Day School Class of 2022!
On June 3rd, 2022, we honored our fifth graders at a wonderful Graduation and Award Ceremony filled with warmth and happiness shared by our graduates, their families, and the faculty who have supported and watched them shine! Held at St. John's Episcopal Church and All Saints Hall, the ceremony included sixteen graduates, their families, St. John's Rector Rev. Ann Ritonia, School Chaplain Rev. Kiona Lookingbill, Head of School Lori Dembo, Board of Trustees Chair Chenwei McGillis, and members of the administration, faculty, and staff.
The diploma and character stone presentation allowed each graduate to be celebrated for their unique qualities. Additionally, we recognized the St. John's award recipients, including Sofie T and Connor S (Spirit Bear Award exemplifying the Five Gifts of St. John's). Robyn B (Writer's College Award), Joey F, Kayleigh H, Colin M, Olivia S, Christopher S, Sofie T, and Tessa T (Young Einstein's Award).
While we will miss our graduates dearly, we are so proud of them and know that they will do great things wherever they go. Congratulations, Class of 2022!
