Congratulations to the Class of 2017!
On Thursday May 25th, 2017, Royal Palm Academy held its 8th grade graduation ceremonies in the MAC.
Twenty-two graduates are moving on to high school after receiving a strong foundation based on solidly Catholic intellectual, character, spiritual, and apostolic principles. During the Mass, Fr. Paul reminded them of the “seeds of faith” that have been planted in their souls, which need to be nurtured as they grow into adulthood. Mr. Baier, during his commencement speech challenged the students to keep God at the center of their lives and to look at three areas to gauge if they are doing that successfully: use of time, use of money, and use of media.
The students were then individually presented with “Virtue” plaques by the Middle School teachers. Dinner and games followed with all of the families, teachers, and staff celebrating together not only a successful year but more importantly, the culmination of the students’ time at Royal Palm Academy.
