Outstanding 8th Graders Receive Academic Honors at Moving Up Ceremony!

On Wednesday afternoon, 8th graders at CHAH celebrated their completion of middle school with the annual 8th Grade Awards & Moving Up Ceremony. 8th graders Nathalie and Gracelyn emceed the event with poise, humor, and confidence.


At the ceremony, students, teachers, and parents filled the gym to hear inspirational words from Mr. House ("It's not just about dreaming, but about doing") and to be honored for their academic accomplishments.

Plaques were awarded to the highest achieving student and the most improved student in each of the content areas. Students reaching mastery in all of their classes were given special medals of achievement. Finally, the top students of the class were honored: Lawrence Diaz as salutatorian and Joy Chen as valedictorian. The winners' classmates were energetic and supportive as students walked across the stage to receive their awards.

Congratulations to the Class of 2021 on reaching the next step in your education!
