Eighth-graders from North Shore School District 112 collected their middle-school diplomas June 4 and said goodbye to Elm Place and Edgewood middle schools and Northwood Junior High, respectively.

For students and teachers, the graduation ceremonies were “bittersweet.”

“It was bittersweet because it was sad that we were graduating but it was also very exciting to be leaving and to know that we are officially in high school,” said Emma Hodgson, who graduated from Northwood.
