Holy Comforter celebrated and honored our alumni this past week!
On Wednesday morning, 8thgraders were "surprised" with a special graduation snack. The event officially welcomes the 8thgraders as our newest members of the alumni association and explains the many benefits and privileges of being an alumnus of Holy Comforter. Students received their class shirt and enjoyed donuts together. It's hard to believe they will be graduating in just a few short weeks, but we are so proud of each and every one of them and can't wait to see them exceed as they begin their next adventure into high school!
On Monday evening, we welcomed high school seniors to campus for a very special reunion with their classmates. The HCES 8thgrade class of 2013 was greeted by former teachers and enjoyed a traditional chapel service in the church. 70% of the senior class returned. Following chapel and a little Q & A, alumni seniors and their parents enjoyed a reception where they reminisced watching their 8thgrade slideshow from 4 years ago. Families and students filled the evening with memories, reflecting on their years spent as part of the Holy Comforter family. Before leaving, the alumni played basketball in the gym, took photos in the courtyard and rang Penny the Bell - aways a favorite! The returning students are truly a testament to the Holy Comforter family as they have already achieved such wonderful accomplishments during their high school careers. We wish them all the best and will always welcome them back with open arms. Congratulations class of 2017!
