Attention 8th Graders:

Dear Parents/Guardians of 8th Grade Alba Students,

We at Alba Middle School will celebrate our 8th graders with an Honors Day program to recognize their achievements this year. Due to COVID restrictions the ceremony will be attended by STUDENTS ONLY. The safety and well-being of every student and our community is our utmost priority, but we did not want to miss this opportunity to honor our students in the best way currently possible.

We invite parents, family and friends to view the ceremony live-streamed on our website, as we want you to be a part of this special day as much as restrictions will currently allow.

• The ceremony will be Tuesday, May 25th at 9:30 A.M. It will last a little longer than an hour.

• Virtual students who wish to attend will need to be dropped off at the gym doors at 8:30 A.M.

• 8th graders should wear clothes that are nice, but not extra dressy or too casual. No jeans, tennis shoes, or t-shirts are to be worn.

• Suggested clothing: Boys can wear pants (no jeans) and a button-up shirt or 3-button shirt.

• Girls can wear pants (no jeans) and a nice shirt, or a skirt and blouse, or a dress. No rompers. Girls need to be aware they cannot wear skirts or dresses that are too short, as these will appear 3-4 inches shorter when the girls walk across the stage. No strapless dresses can be worn. If your blouse or dress is sleeveless the straps must be at least an inch wide, or you must wear a jacket over your shoulders. If you wear shoes with heels make sure that you are comfortable walking in them. You will walk up stairs and across the stage.

• Instead of their uniforms, students will wear their ceremony clothes to school and wear them until they go home. They do not need to bring a uniform to wear after the ceremony.

• Remote students can be picked up from the gym after the ceremony.

• Please do not wait to bring your student until right before the ceremony starts.

• Students will be given a copy of the ceremony program in the folder with their certificates.

• If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the office by calling 251-824-4134.

We are so proud of our 8th grade class and all that they have accomplished in this difficult and trying year.

The live stream of the ceremony will be linked to our Alba Middle School Facebook page and we plan to stream it on the site We will post the links on our Facebook page closer to the ceremony date.
