8th Grade – End-of-the-year Events
We have a few dates, some of which are still tentative, that we would like to share regarding end of the year events for 8th graders. Due to the potential for weather related school closings, the date for 8th Grade Graduation may not be official until late March/early April, when the Board of Education officially approves the end of the school year calendar.
More information on each event will be shared in the coming weeks and months, but please pencil in the following dates:
- 8th Grade Dance (Sponsored by the PTO) – Tuesday, May 26th @ 7:00pm at the Bloomingdale Golf Club
- Warrior Excellence Awards Night (Open to all 8th graders and their families) – Wednesday, May 27th @ 6:30pm at Westfield
- 8th Grade Graduation – (Tentative) Monday, June 1st @ 6:00pm at Lake Park West Campus
Location: Lake Park High School - West Campus Auditorium
Tickets: 4 per family (Graduates do not require a ticket as they will be seated on stage)
Tentative Date: June 1st, 2020 (Pending Board of Education approval)
Order forms for Graduation tickets will be sent home in April. More detailed information regarding Graduation and end of the year activities for 8th graders will be sent home as soon as it becomes available.
