This year’s graduating class of South Washington County Schools’ K-12 Spanish Immersion Pathway hosted their Senior Capstone Celebration at Woodbury High School on Monday, April 23.

The celebration began with a ceremony for the seniors where they received their Bilingual Diploma Seal Awards. Afterward, students invited attendees to learn more about their capstone project by participating in a gallery walk in the cafeteria. Student projects centered on Spanish speaking cultures around the world focusing on art, fashion and food, among other topics.

“These students have worked extremely hard and deserve to be recognized for their outstanding achievements. I am proud of what they have accomplished and am excited to see what they do next,” said Woodbury High School Principal Sarah Sorenson-Wagner.

The Class of 2018 includes: Connor Arland, Ryan Boyd, Stella Cardona, Kaitlyn Dabney, Max Fick, Blake Groschen, Ava Hermann, A.J. Hofelman, Megan Hunt, Leta Krueger, Max Mahoney, Taylor Marcus, David Mueller, Jordan Oleson, Brittany Peterson, Rachel Rana, Haley Roettger, Elise Roubinek, Grace Swenson, Luke Swenson, Luke Velte, Annaliese Voss, Jazmin Weidell, Emma Wenzel and Kate Witte.

The students will earn their diploma from Woodbury High School in June. This is the second class of students to complete the K-12 Spanish Immersion Pathway at the district. This year’s graduating class size of 25 is more than double the class size for the Class of 2017.

The district’s Spanish Immersion Pathway starts in kindergarten at Nuevas Fronteras Spanish Immersion Elementary School. Students can continue their studies at the middle and high school level.
