In celebration and accomplishment for the San Manuel Jr. High schoolers the eighth grade promotion was held on May 21, 2014 in the high school auditorium. All the eighth graders were excited and proud of their accomplishments. Family and friends filled the auditorium as cameras were flashing when the students walked across the stage to receive awards and certificates of promotion making them officially ninth graders now!

Hannah Reidhead and Max Fisher were the recipients of the American Legion Awards, they were chosen as the outstanding boy and girl of their class. There were 12 students who received the President’s Education Awards congratulations to the students who earned this award with a 3.5 GPA or higher. The educators of San Manuel High School couldn’t be prouder of these young students who excel.

Denise Fisher said, “You have all made this my best year of teaching yet. So many of you have touched my heart, and even when I got mad at you, I couldn’t stay mad for long. I hope that when you all graduate (from college!) that you get a job that doesn’t seem like work; a job that you look forward to going to every day. That has been what my job was like this year, because of all of you. Thank you for making me laugh every day. Have a safe and fun summer, and please come visit me next year.”

Students are encouraged by educators and parents to get involved in high school, involved students do much better in school. Parental support is very important and it is nice to live in a community where parents do care about their children.

A balance between celebrating a milestone and moving into high school is great achievement. These students are just beginning to understand the hard work that is going to be required of them in high school. Our hope for these students is that they excel in school and make their individual dreams come true. May the class of 2018 make all of us proud!
