Pastor Anthony Vecchione, graduate Justin Cozzeti’s grandfather, led the invocation of morning and transitioned into a beautiful musical presentation by the fifth grade Soul Strings Ensemble of “Abide With Me” by Henry Francis Lyte.

Dr. Lee then presented the Presidential Awards to Joshua Sagarino, Robert Reuter, Naomi Giancana and Joanna Guo.

The fifth grade Vocal Ensemble then performed “Forever” by Kari Jobe.

Pastor Doug Jansson gave a humorous, yet wise graduation address that left the graduation class with a hopeful outlook on the future.

The presentation of the graduates and their diplomas was led by Dr. Lee., Mr. Lawrence “Larry” Anderson, and Mr. Joel Maus.

The ceremony ended with a slide show showing all of the fifth grade memories throughout the 2015 school year.

Dr. DiBlanda, father of graduate Joshua DiBlanda, said, “I thought it was extremely well organized. It honored the children in a major way, and Pastor Doug Jansson was a perfect speaker for them. He encouraged them, and it honored God by honoring the kids and showed them how special they are.”

Congratulations to the class of 2022
