Congratulations to the Class of 2024 Duquesne City School District 8th graders, who were promoted to 9th grade during a ceremony on May 30.

This is just the second class of 8th graders that have been promoted since the district brought back Middle School students. In total, 60 8th grade students were promoted.

Before accepting their diplomas, the ceremony started off with Molly Means — a Restorative Practice Coordinator for the University of Pittsburgh's Just Discipline Project — giving students recognition for completing her Leaders in Training program (L.I.T) program.

Afterwards, Brian Johnson and YouthWorks recognized students for completing their career exploration and job readiness program. 

Students were given a number of awards before a Tech25 representative talked about the work he's done in the district through a Remake Learning Moonshot Grant.

The momentous day capped off with students walking on stage and receiving their diplomas. Congratulations to the Class of 2024! Plenty of future success and academic achievement is surely ahead.
