6th and 8th Grade Promotion Ceremonies
Guam Adventist Academy promoted nine 6th Grade and six 8th Grade students this school year 2017-2018. The 6th Grade promotion was held on the 20th of May, 2018 in the Upper Room at the Windward Hills Campus.
The program started with the processional, and the promotees gracefully made their way up the stage. Class president Kurt Dela Paz warmly welcomed all the guests for that momentous occasion, followed by an opening prayer led by William Flores. Samuel Jung read the class scripture, and the 5th-6th Hand Chimes class offered a harmonious special music. Pastor Luis Mafnas was the guest speaker for that afternoon. He encouraged all the promotees to always stay close to Jesus as they move on to the next chapter of their lives. The 6th grade class showed their love and appreciation to their parents by giving them flowers together with a short message that they had prepared for them.
The 6th graders concluded this event by sharing their celebration cake with everyone. Congratulations on your promotion! Welcome to Upper School!
Six 8th Grade students participated in the promotion ceremony on May 27, 2018 at the Somnak Ballroom of Westin Resort Guam. Guests and family members of the promotees started filling up the seats of the ballroom around 10:30 a.m. Everyone was eager to witness an important event for these 8th graders.
Keynote speaker, Mr. Chaz Spellman, GAA's Bible chaplain, congratulated the students on their promotion and encouraged them amidst all the uncertainties that they will face. He quoted the verse found in Isaiah 40:31 saying "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." He left this message to the audience, but especially to these six young individuals who will be facing a new stage in their lives as students.
