The 39 eighth-graders at Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen will have their continuation ceremony on Thursday to mark their departure from the school and entrance into high school.
That is not unusual for any eighth-grade class.
What is unusual is that 12 of the 39 students began at Rocky Mountain Academy as kindergartners, and this is the first group of students to attend the school for nine years.
Those 12 in particular are saying goodbye to their home away from home and their classmates, who are more like siblings.
