6:00pm – 9:00pm
Our 8th grade Promotion Ceremony is changing this year from years past. The Promotion Ceremony will occur in the gym on Monday, May 22 at 6:00 pm rather than during the school day. Students will need to be dropped off at 5:30 pm to be in position when the ceremony begins. Immediately following the program, the 8th Grade Semi-Formal Celebration will be held in the cafeteria until 9:00 pm. Refreshments will be provided for students attending the celebration. We are looking forward to celebrating our 8th graders one last time before sending them to high school!
