8th Grade Promotion is Friday, May 28th!

8th grade promotion will be held on Friday, May 28th. Each promoting 8th grader will be able to have one (1) car parade through the campus. We highly recommend decorating your vehicle - bring on the cheer! Once on campus, you will visit a couple of “celebration stations.” The final station will provide the student with the opportunity to get out of the vehicle, formally greet the school administration, and take photos.

Friday, May 28th:
