8th-grade parents Save the Date!!! June 18th we will host an 8th-grade Celebration Ceremony via Facebook Live at 9:30 AM and a Lunch Luau with Kona Ice. Both events will be for Virtual AND Face to Face Raiders! We want to truly celebrate all they have accomplished this year. Students should plan to dress nicely for the ceremony and bring a change of clothes for the Lunch Luau. We also encourage a water bottle and sunscreen. The ceremony and Lunch Luau are for our students only since there are visitor restrictions due to Covid. If you cannot watch the ceremony live, a recording will be posted in your child's Counselor's Canvas course.
Have a great week!
