About 8th Grade
Welcome to 8th grade! During your student’s last year at St. Ann School, our teachers focus on refining the skills they have built throughout junior high and prepping them for high school. Additionally, 8th grade students receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. The class is prepared for the Sacrament during class time and then receives the Sacrament in May at St. Paul’s Parish.
