Graduation is not to be taken lightly. It is a true rite of passage, especially on the San Juan Ridge. When 8th grade students leave their cozy country school to attend a larger high school in town, they are thrust into a new world that is rife with challenges and opportunities. For some the experience is stimulating. For others, it is daunting. For one and all, it is a serious step into the future.

For nine years students have labored to reach this point. Although the most natural thing in the world, growing up is a struggle. Every young person who receives a diploma has earned it. They have proved themselves socially, as well as academically. They have evolved from children into young adults. We acknowledge their achievements, applaud their courage, and wish them well as they embark upon the next step in the great adventure of Life!
