Lenape M.S. Ninth Grade News

Freshman Day & Promotion Night

The end of the 2013-2014 school year is rapidly approaching and that means it's almost time for 2 big events for our 9th graders.

Freshman Dance - June 6

The Freshman Dance will take place in the cafeteria from 7:30 - 10:00 P.M. Please Note: This is NOT a prom or a formal event and no dates are required. Also, all students must arrive by 7:45 P.M. and nobody will be permitted to leave early unless they are picked up by their parent. The dance begins at 7:30 P.M. and ends at 10:00 P.M.

9th Grade Promotion Program - June 19

On Thursday evening, June 19th, we will be holding the Ninth Grade Promotion Program when we take time to recognize the students and promote them on to the high school. It is our way of saying goodbye and good luck as the freshmen move on. You will also hear a message to the class from two of the students and musical selections by the Ninth Grade Choir, Lenape Jazz Ensemble, and Lenape String Quintet.


Selected academic awards are also presented. Please join us for this recognition that starts at 7:00 P.M. in the Lenape Gymnasium. The gym will be extremely crowded and we ask that you try to limit guests to about two/three per student – even that will mean over 700 guests plus freshmen – a big crowd.


  • Freshmen need to be at Lenape by 6:30 P.M.


  • Preferred dress for students is pants and a collared shirt for boys and skirts/slacks for girls (no jeans or t-shirts).


  • The program will last about an hour -maybe a little longer. Parents will sit in the bleachers.


PLEASE NOTE: PROMOTION NIGHT PRACTICE WILL BE HELD ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 18 AT 1:40 P.M.
