La Cañada High School 8th-graders were promoted recently on a rainy day, but spirits were not dampened. The 7th-grade band played “Pomp and Circumstance” with conductor Jimmie Myers. ASB President Nick Cook performed the flag salute. The national anthem and the song “For Good” from “Wicked” were performed by the 7/8 vocal ensemble and led by director Jeff Brookey. Promotional addresses were given by Taleen Sample and Gabriel Molina-Kong. Principal Jarrett Gold presented awards and made closing remarks.
