8th Grade Promotion Edition

Tickets go home Thursday, June 9

Advisory teachers have the tickets to give students. It's OK for students to share unneeded tickets as long as they are the in the same ceremony. The 8:30 tickets are Gray and the 10:00 tickets are Green.

Where to enter the building

Everyone attending the promotion ceremonies need to enter the doors of the Main Gym at the east end of the campus. Tickets will be taken at the door. The front of the building will not be an entrance for promotion. Attendees are encouraged to park in the parking lot at the east end of the campus and in the Nazarene Church parking lot.

Dress Code

We encourage students to dress up if they choose, however, the MMS Dress Code still applies. All outfits must be school appropriate. School administrators may exercise their authority to determine/enforce any clothing that is a major disruption to the school environment.

What to expect during the ceremonies.


  • Each ceremony will be about 45 minutes long.
  • We will have short speeches, including each advisory teacher who will introduce their class before calling each student by name.
  • Mustang Way Awards will also be given.
  • After students cross the stage with their certificate, we will be taking their picture in the Commons in our special Promotion photo booth.
  • Parents can meet their student in the Commons or outside for more pictures.
  • Please be prepared for traffic and parking congestion in between the two ceremonies.

After the ceremonies

After each ceremony, parents may can check their student out if they wish, but we hope students stay at school as we have fun activities planned, including:
  • BBQ 8th grade lunch (all 8th graders will have lunch together)
  • Mustang Rodeo (field day activities, including time for yearbook signing)

Find your student's advisory teacher's name below to know which ceremony they will be in.
