If anyone is counting, our graduating seniors are wrapping up their K-12 academic careers with more than 15,200 hours of teaching and learning. (That’s 6.5 hours for 180 days for 13 years for those doing the math at home.) After all that hard work, we’re not surprised that this largest-ever class of graduates is ready to cross the stage to accept their diploma and turn their tassels.
In a special issue of Communiqué, we've pulled together photos, facts, and just a few of the scholarships and awards garnered by members of the outstanding group of students that make up GCPS’ Class of 2018. (With more than 12,600 seniors on-track for graduation, just a list of names would take more than 84 pages!) Of course, many more students earned prestigious honors and scholarships that are not part of this issue, but, rest assured, they are being celebrated at school-based honor events and graduation ceremonies.
Congratulations on this exciting milestone, seniors!
