READY FOR 1st – Christopher Ogburn, Juanita Hope Ryder, Kamdin Hensley and Layton Smith (left to right) have completed kindergarten at Trout Creek School and will be moving on to the first grade.

"Failure doesn't mean the game is over, it means try again – with experience," was the theme surrounding Trout Creek's eighth grade and kindergarten 2018 Promotional Ceremony.

Helium balloons reading "Congrats Grad!" and "You Did It!" danced among foil streams of gold, silver and blue, while delicate white lights added a soft touch to the Trout Creek Eagles gymnasium recognizing the accomplishments of 10 students.

Custom slide shows, created by each of the six eighth-grade students, reflected what has made each graduate so special. Photos of family members, memorable trips, favorite recreational activities and future plans were brought to life on the big screen. While showcasing their presentations, each student graced their parents with a floral bouquet showing love and appreciation.

Allison Braunschweig, Connor Dogan, Sharon Habegger, Steven Habegger, Sydney Hinchley and Kaydince Menzel have received their eight-grade diplomas and are ready for their next adventure.

On the other extreme, four kindergarten students were presented with a diploma as well. Each student was given the opportunity to share their future goals. Kamdin Hensley and Christopher Ogburn dream of becoming a "cop," Layton Smith wishes to become a sheriff and Juanita Hope Ryder is sure she will become a doctor.

Teacher Cody Linderman was the guest speaker for the event. "If plan A does not work out, there are 25 other letters in the alphabet," he advised graduates. "When you get knocked down, get yourself up, dust off and knock it right back."
