The 8th Grade Promotion Ceremony will take place on Thursday, June 11, 2015 at 8:30 AM on the FAMMS field. We look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of our students! To make this ceremony one of our best, please observe the following: Promoting 8th grade students should dress appropriately for a dignified ceremony. Students should not rent tuxedoes or buy prom dresses for this event. Students should NOT wear short pants, halter tops, strapless dresses, or any other clothing that is overtly revealing. Students inappropriately dressed may be removed from the ceremony. If students arrive to the ceremony with inappropriate attire, every attempt will be made to contact parents to bring appropriate clothing so that your child will be able to participate. At the promotion ceremony please do NOT bring balloons as they block the view of others. We appreciate your cooperation with the Promotion Ceremony and hope that this year’s event is a special one for each child and their family! For parents of current 7th grade students, please remember that 7th graders must not be at school on June 11. The last day of school for 7th grade students is June 10. The 8th Grade Promotion is exclusive to 8th grade students and their families. Seventh graders will have their exclusive turn next year. Thank you!

In general, parents will have access to: the course syllabus, grading practices, biographical teacher information, contact information, classwork and homework assignments, teacher created notes and handouts that often may be downloaded to view or print, helpful course-related links and class calendars. Please click on the Parents tab above for information on creating a parent Haiku account.
