Today, SHCS 8th grade students completed their last exams and left to what has become a Sacred Heart tradition since 2011. All the students of Sacred Heart line the school to say farewell to the graduating class during the 8th Grade “Clap-Out.”
A few minutes before the final bell, 8th-grade students pack up for the last time and leave the middle school hallway together in one long line. “Celebration” by Kool & The Gang pumps through the school speakers while teachers and students from Kindergarten through 7th grade applaud and honor our graduating 8th graders. They are received at the front of the school to the outstretched arms of proud parents. Congratulations, Class of 2017; You are now Sacred Heart Cathedral School alumni!
