On Tuesday evening, San Rafael Junior High sent off another year of ninth graders. Class officer and honor student Carlie Robinson welcomed family, friends and students to the program. Honor students Mileena McElvaney, Samantha Roberts, Landon Fairbanks, Hayden Cloward, Riata Christiansen and Samantha Morgan also addressed the audience.
Music was provided by talented students Malone Moss and Hannah Morris, who performed a piano duet titled “Power Play.” The ninth grade chorus students also entertained the audience with their performance of “Homeward Bound.”
Principal Doug Mecham was the final speaker. He honored the top performing students in various subjects, such as language arts, math, science and art, after which the honor students, those who maintained 4.0 GPAs for all three years of junior high, received awards. The evening was concluded with a video presentation with various pictures of the ninth grade students. Following the program, friends and family members were encouraged to peruse art and FACS projects set up in the commons area while enjoying refreshments.
