Congratulations to all of our newly Knighted 4th grade students! In 4th grade, these boys are the leaders of our Lower School, and they set an example for all those younger than themselves. These Knights have learned to be courteous to all in the Regis community, and they have committed to living as scholars and gentlemen for years to come.
