With pride and excitement, 26 eighth graders graduated this year from The Rashi School. In the weeks prior to graduation, the class of 2019 acted as ambassadors at the school’s annual dinner, reflected on past accomplishments and achievements, and celebrated the special relationships between students, faculty and staff. They also unveiled their class gift. Each year, the eighth-grade class at Rashi bestows an original gift to the school as their legacy. This year, the class decided upon a water bottle-filling station. The students worked hard to find a gift that reflected their voice and belief in helping the environment; the water bottle is a way to reduce the school’s carbon footprint and raise awareness of the climate change problem.
