The eighth-grade graduation for Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Academy in Forest Hills took place on Saturday, June 16. There were 28 graduates and their proud families.
Graduates performed a Rose Ceremony. Each student, with two red roses in hand, presented one rose to a family member and another rose to a faculty member. These roses of gratitude were for the love and support the students received, leading up to this momentous day.
Tears of joy were on the smiling faces of both the graduates and their respective recipients.
