THE BRONX - Saint Raymond Elementary School held its final graduation Mass of the school year Tuesday.

Pastor John Graham, alongside other religious leaders, came together to bless and celebrate the graduating class along with communion and confirmation students.

Many of the students, some who have been attending classes since pre-school, said they are sad but looking forward to starting a new chapter.

"I love that the school is just a family and we always come together at Mass once a month or end of the year. We come together and it brings us all together," says Anjali Frankoyn, the class valedictorian.

The celebration continues on Wednesday with an ice cream party to officially kick off summer.
