8th Grade Promotion Emery Class of 2016 Celebrates Diversity at End-of-Year Awards The Class of 2016 ended their eighth grade careers with a bang, and a lot of laughter at the 8th Grade Promotion ceremony in May. “Embracing our individuality and differences throughout our middle school years brought this class closer together and taught us the differences in all types of people,” said eighth grader Mikayla Smolensky, who was one of two student-selected speakers at this year’s ceremony. Students honored for their academic prowess include: Visual Arts: Noah Miller Performing Arts: Bram Lowenstein Advanced History: Gaby Ross History: Lauren Weinberger English: Mikayla Smolensky Hebrew: Tyler Cohen Physical Education: Max Dokell Music: Danielle Singer Judaic Studies: Cyrus Pacht Spanish: Naomi Kass Mathematics: Arielle Terk Science: Evan Diebner Athletics: Colin Hecht and Morgan Levy Overall Academic Excellence: Lauren Schoen and Zachary Roubein
