Rock Canyon High School graduation
By Scott Lasher
Rock Canyon High School will send off it’s third graduating class, the Class of 2009 on Friday, May 22. The class is the first to have gone through both seventh and eighth grade at Rocky Heights Middle School, so the occasion marks a big day for schools serving the Castle Pines North community.
Around 315 students will walk in their cap and gowns and receive their diplomas. Of those 315 graduating, 131 will be graduating with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher, which means more than 40 percent of the class will be graduating with honors. Students and guest speakers will commemorate the event at Shea Stadium in Highlands Ranch.
Best of luck to the Class of 2009 from all of Castle Pines!
