Graduation Cereony 2012

On Saturday May 26th friends and families of RIS gathered for the elementary and middle school graduation.  It was a joyful afternoon filled with many events to pay tribute to our 2011-2012 graduating classes and to celebrate another great year at RIS.
 The ceremony opened with a parade of nations showcasing the diversity and multiculturalism of RIS, as children from 25 nations dressed in their traditional clothing all proudly carried their flag across the stage. 
 Our elementary and middle school valedictorians Joshua Seo and Minh Hang Nguyen both delivered inspiring speeches that emphasized the skills they learned at RIS that will enable them to be future leaders and global citizens. 
A special thanks to the parents who performed with their Latin choir, your contribution was greatly appreciated.
 After the graduates were awarded their diplomas and recognized for their hard work and dedication, everyone sat back and enjoyed slideshows, class performances of dance, song , a beautiful student/teacher duet performed by Sophia and Ms.Maher and Iman`s special violin performance.
Everyone enjoyed the traditional Fan Dance and last but not least as a dedication to all the student of RIS, the teachers joined together in song.

A very sincere thank you to our MC's;  Ms. Naika Ross and Ms. Nuri Lee. 

Finally, we would like to extend our gratitude to Ms. Ross, Ms. Sawlor, Ms.Bokhwa and Ms. Suhyun for organizing this event, a successful close to another school year thanks to all your efforts.  It was a wonderful celebration of our year and we are so happy everyone came together to honor the graduates and we would like to wish each and everyone of you success and prosperity in your future.
