Announcements, Gifts, Seating, Parking, Dresses, and Party

Dear 8th Grade Parents,

Graduation Announcements (10 per student) will be sent home today with your 8th grader. Please see Patti Long in the registrar's office if you need a few extra. Please note below other graduation items of interest.

  • Each student will receive one gift from MJS to be worn at the graduation ceremony.
  • Parents of graduates get two reserved seats at graduation. Additional seating for family members is available in the back of the gymnasium on a first come, first serve basis.
  • Gymnasium doors will be open on Graduation day at 3:00 pm for seating.
  • Graduates should arrive at school by 3:00 pm for a group photo.
  • Parking will be available along the streets and at the Sheraton on Cordova. We will have validation tickets for those in need.
  • Following Graduation, our room parents have planned a dinner for Graduates and their families. Room parents will provide details soon.

For Girls

Graduation Dress Fitting

Friday, April 22



  • Girls should bring the shoes to the fitting that they plan on wearing at Graduation.
  • Shoes are required to be white with a low heel (not to exceed 2.5")
  • Please refrain from scheduling appointments on this day as our seamstress can only come at this time.
  • The total cost of the dress is $120, and the check may be made payable to MJS. Payment is due by the dress delivery date in May.

If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact your child's advisor, Patti Bedrosian Long, and/or Bridget Kelley-Lossada. Please navigate to the 8th Grade Resource Page when checking for updates.

Happy Easter!
