8th Grade Promotion Parade

8th Grade Promotion

We can’t send our 8th graders to the high school without one last celebration!  Join us on Thursday evening, May 14 from 7:00 pm - 7:45 pm for our Promotion Parade!

 Families are invited to drive west down E. Hamilton and north along Cottage Grove.  Teachers will line the road in front of the middle school waving and cheering you on in celebration of all your accomplishments during middle school.  We invite you to drive slowly north along Cottage Grove as a symbolic drive from the middle school toward the high school.  

For the safety of all involved, we will ask that you stay in your vehicles and do not stop to talk to anyone, just continue to follow the flow of traffic, and proceed down the road toward the high school turning either on Patterson Street or continuing straight toward Normal Avenue. 

Promotion certificates will be mailed home with grade cards.
