On Monday, June 5th, Eaton School celebrated the accomplishments of their students in areas such as athletics, arts, academics and school involvement at their annual Colour Night.
There were also many scholarships awarded to the Grade 12 students. The evening began with the handing out of academic awards.
All students from grades 7-9 receive a certificate with emblems on them for each of the four man classes: Math, Science, English and Social Studies. The emblems can be in three different colours indicated different levels. A bronze means that the student has achieved a three on the one-to-five grading scale. A silver means they have achieved a Level 4 and a gold means that the student has achieved a Level 5.
