8th GRADE CULMINATION INFORMATION
Culmination will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 12, 2013. The ceremony is held on the far north end of campus (field behind the District Office). Culmination seating will be available starting at 5:30p.m. Parents may not reserve seating prior to 5:30 p.m. Students need to report to their assigned rooms no later than 5:45 p.m. and be dressed in appropriate culmination attire:
Boys: Long pants (no shorts) and a collared shirt (no t-shirts).
Girls: School appropriate dress and flat dress shoes (no heels or flip-flops).
All students participating in the culmination ceremony will be wearing blue gowns (no caps) during the ceremony. Culmination is an exciting time for our students as well as a milestone in their lives. Everyone is entitled to have his/her special “moment” when parents and family hear their student's name called as they take the stage. Members of the audience, as well as the students culminating, should refrain from extended bouts of yelling, whistling, etc. when names are called. Air horns are NOT allowed. Noise makers, beach balls, balloons, or other distractions are not appropriate during the ceremony. Don't worry, there will be ample opportunities for you to cheer for your student and the entire 8th grade class. Students are expected to remain seated and quiet during the entire ceremony. Students who disrupt the ceremony may be asked to leave the ceremony and/or denied a diploma.
8th grade students who wish to participate in the activities or ceremony MUST have at least 90 behavior points by June 1st (last Sat. work program available).
