8th Grade Promotion

In order to recognize successful completion of their middle school education, eligible students are invited to participate in a promotion ceremony at the year’s end.

To receive an invitation to participate in the promotion ceremony, a student must meet the following criteria:

  • Meet the District’s academic promotion criteria ( not be retained in grade 8)
  • Have a GPA of 1.5 or better for work completed in the eighth grade year
  • Have, in the opinion of the school administrator, a record of good attendance and behavior. Should a student have repeated suspensions due to truancy or discipline referrals, they will be denied participation privileges. The parent should keep in close contact with their student’s assistant principal.
