Your ONE STOP Location for all things 8th grade

PROMOTION DETAILS - UPDATED 6/10/21

Dear 8th grade families,


We are excited about our upcoming Promotion event. As you know, school events are special and we love any opportunity to celebrate the successes of our scholars. We wanted to take a moment to give you the details of the day’s events. All 8th grade scholars will work virtually on Friday, June 18, giving them time to get ready for the promotion event. School ends for our 6th and 7th graders at 11:30 am. We will clear the campus at noon to ensure we are ready for you and your families beginning at 12:30 pm. We will have many VIP guests including members of our Board of Education and District office leaders at our event.


This is a very special day. PLEASE BE SURE YOUR SCHOLAR IS DRESSED APPROPRIATELY. See below for the dress code expectations from our scholar handbook.


Promotion Dress Code

Scholars participating in promotion are expected to be dressed appropriately, according to district standards. This means no shorts or hats. All undergarments are to be covered at all times. Strapless or backless dresses will not be permitted and all straps on dresses/shirts must be at least one wide (1”). Dresses and skirts must be at least thumb length when against the scholar’s thigh. Sandals with back straps are allowed, however no flip flops. Heels must be less than two inches (2”) high.


Please come during your scheduled time.

  • Scholars with last names A-F will be coming from 12:30-1 pm

  • Scholars with last names G-M will be coming from 1-1:30 pm

  • Scholars with last names N-Z will be coming from 1:30-2 pm


Each family will be allowed to have 1 vehicle participate in the drive through event. Please have your scholar sitting on the passenger side of the car. There will be several stops for your scholar to be celebrated - one from PTA, one for awards (you will be notified if your scholar is receiving an award), one to walk across the stage with their name read, and a family photo stop. Please see the attached map for specific stops/details.


If you arrive before our campus is cleared, you will be asked to park off of San Clemente Drive until we are ready to invite you on campus, which we hope will be around 12:15 pm. We will have personnel available to guide you on to campus at that point. Thank you for your help with this.


All scholar materials will be collected the following week at the following times:

  • June 21 - 9 am - 11:30 am
  • June 22 - 9 am - 11:30 am
  • June 23 - 3 pm - 5:30 pm

Please come when it's convenient for your schedule during these times. Remember, ALL RMMS items MUST be returned in order to register for the high school. Textbooks, library books, and technology, including all cords.

ATTENTION ATHLETES! INFORMATION ABOUT VHS SPORTS

Hello Future Panthers.


Here is a link to sign up for ALL Vista HS athletic information. I always recommend students get involved in sports. It's a great way to teach students about character and teamwork as well as stay active. Coaches are sometimes the biggest mentors for our students.


We are asking for families to fill out the form below by this Tuesday June 15 to get an idea of how many of our students are interested. The coaches will reach out to you with more information. This does not mean you are required to participate but that you are interested. So even if you are considering it, I'd recommend filling out the form.


There will also be a Summer B&G's Basketball, football, field hockey, cross country, volleyball & water polo programs going on at VHS starting June 21st. This is not mandatory but recommended so students can get familiar with the team and coaches. The form will also ask you if you are interested in the summer program.


If you have any questions, please email the Athletic Director Pat Moramarco at patmoramarco@vistausd.org
