Passages will be Friday, May 27th at MGMS. More information about the presentation times and schedule are to come. You will not want to miss these thoughtful reflections of our 8th graders.
What exactly is Passages? A Passages presentation is an opportunity for students to reflect upon their learning and demonstrate readiness for the next phase of their educational experience...high school. EL Education Schools provide this experience and opportunity to eighth-grade students to help them improve upon public speaking and to prepare them for student-led conferences. This year, students will present their Passages in a group setting to parents, family and other adults.
This year, Passages presentations will focus upon the Habits of Scholarship as they pertained to a middle school educational experience. Students will provide specific examples of how they displayed the Habits of Scholarship in an exemplary way.
8th Grade Celebration will be Tuesday, May 31st at 6:30 at River Bluff High School. We will recognize all 8th-grade students during this special ceremony.
Check with your child's teacher if you have questions!
