Baker’s eighth-grade graduation took place June 2 at the Unitarian Church of Evanston. Our graduates shared memories of their years at Baker and moved us to tears with their speeches, artwork, and songs. Congratulations, all!

The morning before graduation, Middle School students gathered in the cafeteria for a special breakfast honoring our eighth-graders. The morning was filled with emotional tributes and funny gifts bestowed by eighth-grade advisors Dennis Gallagher and Tyler Leach.

This year’s graduates leave behind a gaga pit as a lasting expression of their appreciation to Baker! Students worked hard to raise funds for the gift, raising $2,000 by renting out the Baker parking lot for Northwestern football games and hosting babysitting nights.
