Eighth Grade Promotion

The promotion will take place on Wednesday, May 18th at 6:30 pm in the High School Gym. Students should arrive no later than 6:00 pm. Photos will be taken by Cheekwood in the morning of the 18th. Picture packets were sent home last week but we have more in the office, if you did not receive one. Orders with payment will be given to the photographer the day of pictures being taken. Both individuals and a class photo will be taken with students in their gowns.

We will also have a backdrop setup outside of the PAC for family/friend photos after the Promotion ceremony. Gowns will be available for the photos.

Attire for Ceremony

Students do not wear gowns during the Promotion Ceremony. Therefore, we ask that your child please dress in a manner befitting the event. Any questions regarding the dress code may be directed to the class sponsors, Mrs. Grass and Mr. Rudolph.

Eighth Grade Rehearsal

Students will be going to the High School at 7:45 am on Wednesday, May 18th for a full rehearsal of the evening's Promotion Ceremony. Please be sure that your child arrives on time so they do not miss the informational meeting and rehearsal as well as photos.

Eighth Grade T-Shirts

T-shirts have all been ordered and will be given out to students as soon as they arrive. A special "Thank You" to the PTO for helping with the purchasing of the shirts.


All eligible students will be leaving for Six Flags at 8:00 am on Friday morning. Please be sure they dress for the weather and bring sunscreen, if needed.

The park does not accept cash for the purchase of ANY items (food, drink, etc.). Six Flags ONLY accepts card & mobile payments onsite. They have cash-to-card devices inside the park. If your child brings cash to purchase any item they will need to use the Kiosk to transfer cash to card.

Students will be arriving at 4:30 pm to Danby. Please be sure to make arrangements for pick-up.

School rules and park rules will apply during the duration of the field trip.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the sponsors.
