8th Grade Promotion

Celebrating Success with our 8th Grade Wolves!

Promotion Ceremony at Eleanor Roosevelt High School

June 3, 2022 1:00 p.m.

Dear Parents, Guardians & Students,

It is an exciting time for all of us as you get ready to leave ARIS and prepare for another adventure along your educational journey. Below are a few reminders about the ARIS promotion that will help make this event an enjoyable experience for all.

Reminder: The last day of school for all 8th grade students is Thursday June 2nd ("Fun Day")


8th graders will report directly to "stage" (line up) for the Promotion Ceremony at 12:00 noon on Friday, June 3rd at the ERHS Gym. Students will check in and line up in the ERHS Gym and staff will make sure CNUSD dress code guidelines have been followed. Parents will not be admitted into the Gym where students are lining up. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

Limited parking will be available for 8th-grade families in front of ERHS and in the ERHS stadium parking. Parents are encouraged to proceed to the parking area after dropping their 8th graders off at the gym by 12:00 noon.

The Promotion Ceremony will begin at 1:00 p.m. at the Eleanor High School Football Stadium. Tickets are NOT required to attend the promotion.


Students are encouraged to dress comfortably and they must follow all CNUSD dress code guidelines.

  • Formal attire is NOT appropriate.
  • Normal length dresses or dress pant outfits are acceptable for ladies. Nice slacks or jeans with collared button-down shirts, polos, or T-Shirts are appropriate for gentlemen.
  • Dresses or tops must NOT be strapless, backless, low cut or revealing, or show any bare midriff. Any dresses or tops designed in this style must have a cover-up that appropriately covers these areas. If you have any doubt, please make sure a cover is worn. Clothing not meeting the guidelines will result in the student not being allowed to participate in the Promotion Ceremony. Please err on the side of caution and bring a cover just in case!!
  • Please note: the metal chairs for promotion will be out in the sun all day. The seats will be very hot. Students who wear short dresses or skirts will have difficulty sitting.
  • Shoes may not have any heel unless wedge style. (Please be advised that students wearing heels will need to remove them. ERHS has specific rules about the field turf).


Please review the following guidelines to help make the Promotion Ceremony a safe and enjoyable event for all ARIS students and families:

  • Students will not be able to carry items such as water bottles/containers, cameras, flowers, leis, balloon bouquets, etc. These items will be taken from students and remain in the ERHS Gym (unsupervised) until after the Promotion Ceremony. Parents are encouraged to hold these items to ensure safekeeping.
  • Student cell phones are not to be used during the ceremony. It is highly recommended students leave cell phones with parents/guardians. Supervising teachers will confiscate cell phones that are out during the ceremony.
  • To ensure that all guests attending can see and enjoy the Promotion Ceremony, please be advised that air horns, EZ-ups, umbrellas, balloon bouquets, or any items blocking the view of others are not permitted in the stadium seating areas.
  • During Promotion practice on Thursday, students will learn which side of the stadium they will be entering. Parents, please check with your child so you can plan to sit on the side your child will be entering if you wish.
  • Parents/Guardians are not permitted on the field at any time. This is a safety issue and will be strictly enforced.
  • Following the Promotion Ceremony, students will recess in the areas outside of the stadium in the alley between the home stadium side and ERHS tennis courts to greet families.
  • Plan a meeting area with your child after the ceremony so they can find you.

The ARIS staff looks forward to celebrating this special milestone in the educational journey of our 8th graders! We wish you all the best in high school!
