8th Grade Recognition Scheduled

Our 8th graders will be recognized at the Promotion Ceremony on Wednesday, May 23rd at 8:30am in the Bosse High School Auditorium. This is a formal ceremony, so students are encouraged to dress up for the occasion.


The dress code: Ladies can wear dresses, skirts or dress pants. Dresses and skirts must be longer than finger tip length and shoulders must be covered. If girls are wearing dresses with tank tops or straps, they can cover shoulders with sweaters or jackets.


Gentlemen are encouraged to wear dress shirts and ties or bow ties. Jackets and suits are encouraged.


Parking: Parking will be limited to the football stadium parking lot along Highway 41. Please enter the doors that face Washington Avenue. The main parking lot will only be open for handicapped family members.


This is a formal event to honor the work of our students. We ask that you help us model appropriate and respectful behavior during this event by clapping respectfully and refraining from yelling as student names are being called. This is out of respect for all families, so they can also hear their child's name.

Two helpful websites for extra practice

We found two websites that have been very helpful in filling academic gaps for students. We'll be working on these two sites the next few months in our WIN period. Both sites can be worked on at home to further assist students in their academic growth.


www.noredink.com - This is a grammar and language website that supports writing skills. Students will take a diagnostic test this week which will guide them to the lessons, practice and quizzes that they need. Students will work through those lessons each week during WIN period. If you'd like to also support continued growth, please have them work on their lessons at home.


www.prodigygame.com - This is a math game that starts students at certain levels after taking an intro test. Students start at their level and work through the lessons and practice. We will also be working on this during WIN to support student growth in math, but they are encouraged to work on this outside of school as well.


Please let us know if you have any questions about these programs. Thank you in advance for supporting our students' growth in academics.
