8th Grade Celebration Reminder

James Workman Middle School, 2023

Drive Through Promotion Celebration

We will be hosting our third drive through promotion celebration on June 8th beginning at 8:45 a.m. for all 8th graders. This will allow our families to bring in as many guests as they can to celebrate with their students. We encourage you to arrive with your students already in the vehicle. We will be closing our gates at 12:00, at which time any one who missed the fun can pick up their certificate in the front office.

To avoid congestion at the entrance of the celebration, cars will enter via Santoro Drive and follow the path around the soccer park, make a right onto 30th and then an immediate right into the staff parking lot, where they will be checked in. Certificates will be handed out in the 8th grade quad, cars will exit through the PE area gates these are the areas that service vehicles typically use when on campus. At the end of the route, cars may proceed to the photo area in front of the admin office, where there will be a snaked traffic pattern. Staff members will monitor the photo area to ensure that there is no back-up. Cars who will not be staying for photos may exit via San Eljay with no congestion. Orange star=check-in, blue=certificate handout, yellow=photos.

Driving pattern for the event will be as follows:

After the Celebration

Some families may wish to take their students home with them at the end of the celebration. We will be providing a check-out sheet at the entry point of the ceremony; you need only give the slip to the staff member when you pick up your students promotion certificate.
