2022 PBA 8th Grade Graduation

On Tuesday, June 7, 2022, PBA celebrated the official end to the school year at its graduation ceremony. For the first time since 2019, we were able to allow extended family members and other guests to attend, and the front courtyard was full of happy people wishing our graduates well. Highlights included Mr. Leo’s tribute to the graduating class. The eighth grade announced its class gift to the school – new basketball uniforms, including a special jersey for Mr. Leo marked with the number 22, their class year. The ceremony concluded with a wonderful art show organized by Ms. Jensen and a buffet dinner organized by a team of parents. Members of the class of 2022 will be attending Bishop O’Dowd High School, Berkeley High School, San Domenico School, Campolindo High School, and Alta High School in Draper, Utah. We wish our graduates all the best. We can’t wait to hear about their adventures and accomplishments in the future!
