Promotion and End of Year Activities


We honor our 8th grade students who Promote to High School at a Promotion Ceremony each year.

This year the Ceremony will be June 7th, 2017 at 9:00 am and will last no more than an hour.

Promotion Ceremony Criteria: The eighth grade promotional ceremony is a special award for 8th grade students who have successfully completed middle school. A typical 8th grade student will take 18 classes during the year (6 per trimester). This student must pass 15 or more classes to be eligible to participate in the Promotion Ceremony. A student’s 4th failing trimester mark will eliminate them from the Promotion Ceremony. Students may be placed on a contract due to behavior problems and lose the privilege of attending the promotion ceremony if problems persist. Disciplinary action taken during the 3rd trimester may result in revocation of promotion and will be at the discretion of the administration.
