MILWAUKIE — Graduation ceremonies for eighth graders of Christ the King School in Milwaukie will be held at 7 p.m. Friday, June 6, at Christ the King Church.
Eighth graders have been focusing on exhibiting the schoolwide learning expectations in everyday life. They have challenged themselves to be spiritual people, lifelong learners and people of integrity. As a component of their eighth grade seminar, students created a personal project that showed their mastery of the expectations and made them “more interesting individuals.”
The result was a diverse array of projects that showed off students’ interests and talents and gave classmates an opportunity to see their peers in a new light. There were projects showcasing students’ artwork, photography blogs and travel portfolios. Students composed songs, wrote raps, created fashion websites, wrote novellas, cooked five-course meals, and learned HTML coding. They set up scientific experiments with computer games, analyzed the physics behind a Wiffle ball pitch and created detailed maps for use in their favorite video games. One student even created a replica of the school building and campus in Minecraft.
Students shared their gifts and talents in new ways. They learned new things about their classmates while exploring something about themselves.
