Principal's Corner

February 3, 2023

On February 2, we celebrated our January graduates with a luncheon in the library.  A total of 34 young men and women graduated last month.  Some of the new Grover Cleveland alumni graduated early, while a few were students who needed additional time to complete their graduation requirements.  Regardless of whether the students were early graduates or persevering graduates, we celebrate this achievement and honor these young men and women.  Each one of our graduates had the clarity and foresight to set a goal, make a plan, and ensure that they were prepared to achieve their goal.  Some of our graduates have already started college at Hunter, Fashion Institute of Technology, Borough of Manhattan Community College, and Queens College.  Others are set to begin school in September.  Two of our alumni have already enrolled in the military and some have begun working and engaging in vocational training.  Whatever the destination, whatever the goal, however long it took to get there, we as a community are proud of our graduates and celebrate their achievements.  We know they will carry the spirit of Grover Cleveland High School with them into the world, today, tomorrow,  and in the years to come.
