Center stage at Leroy Greene Academy’s 8th-grade promotion ceremony today was a huge banner, signed by the students, committing to graduate from high school together as the “Class of 2023.”
LGA’s multipurpose room was packed by families as the 8th-grader Lions walked across the stage, one-by-one, to shake hands with Supt. Chris Evans, Principal Scott Fitzgerald and other officials in a ceremony honoring their promotion to high school.
When teachers were asked to provide a single word to describe this year’s 8th-grade class, Principal Scott Fitzgerald said responses included passionate, enthusiastic, caring, lively, exuberant, and his “personal favorite” – sassy.
Congratulations, Lions! We applaud your achievement, your “sass” and your commitment to graduate together in 2023.
You’re joining a long tradition of academic success. In the three years that LGA has graduated 12th-graders, every senior has qualified for admission to UC or CSU. … We’ll be cheering you on, Lions, over the next four years …
