Promotion is a special occasion, and we want all students to take pride in their attire.
Here are the attire requirements:
  • Shirts should be collared; necktie recommended but not required (no tee shirts).
  • Pants should be slacks or dress pants (no jeans or shorts).
  • Length of dresses/skirts must be appropriate for school. Please keep in mind students will be sitting on a stage.
  • Shoes may be open-toed or heeled but must have a strap (no flip-flops)
  • All outfits must have shoulder straps that cover undergarments and may not be strapless, low-cut, or have an exposed midriff.                  
Parking will be limited; therefore, families are encouraged to form carpools. 

Street parking remains the best option, though many of these spaces are designated as Permit Only. Please also be mindful of parking spots that are reserved for handicap-permitted vehicles.
Students practices will start the week before promotion, in the afternoon, once locker clean-out is finished. Seating assignments will be distributed in Advisement classes. Students are encouraged to wear something comfortable AND that they can sit on the ground with (avoid skirts/dresses this day!).

**It is critical for every student to be present at all promotion practices. Please do not schedule any appointments during this time!**
In order to accommodate all students in the eighth-grade class and their families, we are asking that you complete a ticket request form. This document will be posted online Friday May 3rd
Please note that tickets are at a premium, as seating is limited. Therefore, we cannot honor special requests for large families or relatives who are traveling from out of town. Every student is guaranteed two tickets. A student (or their family member) can request 1 additional ticket. Those requests will be honored based on the order of request and are limited to additional supply.
Tickets will be distributed to students at the conclusion of the last promotion practice. Should you have any questions after all tickets have been distributed, please contact Alyssa Branham at [email protected].
