With tribute in song from each of the lower grades, culminating in a rose exchange from First Grade “buddies” who had been mentored by the Eighth Grade students, the students in the school were able to say good-bye to the exiting class while also wishing them a successful new beginning in high school.

Later that evening, the Eighth Grade class enjoyed a meaningful and emotional graduation ceremony and party. Pasadena Waldorf School congratulates the Class of 2013.
