After years of homework, reports and projects, including the ever-popular fourth grade mission model, parents and seniors at Clark Magnet and Crescenta Valley high schools saw the end of an era as the graduating members of the Class of 2006 received their diplomas on June 22.
Clark Magnet High School graduated 244 students. Celine Mackerdichian, Associated Student Body president, said having a good support system is important for having successful high school years.
"Know your counselor very well, because he/she will be the one writing your recommendation letter to colleges," she advised. "And don't slack off after freshmen year because sophomore year is the hardest, and many private colleges don't even look at the classes you've taken your freshmen year."
