The Roncalli High School Class of 2019 celebrated a beautiful Baccalaureate liturgy in our Family Room last Friday. We extend a special thank you to all of the priests from our South Deanery parishes that joined us for the liturgy. The Class of 2019, joined by family members and friends, celebrated commencement exercises in Roncalli Stadium last Saturday. We felt blessed to be outdoors, as it allowed all who wished to attend the ceremonies to do so.

Thank you to Valedictorian Katie Minton and to Salutatorian Amanda Blankenberger for two great speeches!

The Spring Advanced Manufacturing Tech students worked on the mirror project and step stools, which were donated to Rebelation, and the Intro to Engineering Drawing classes created RV Truck with the top three receiving chocolate rewards. The Digital Electronics students (not pictured above) used soldering irons and wire to build mini-digital pianos.
