For hundreds of students in the Bear Valley Unified School District, last week was the final week of the 2018-19 school year. Celebrations took place at every school — luaus and promotion ceremonies at the elementary schools, the Big Bear Middle School promotion, Chautauqua High School graduation and Big Bear High School graduation.

Big Bear Grizzly photographers Judi Bowers, Kelsey Bowers and Kathy Portie documented the festivities. See more photos online at
