8th Grade Promotion Ceremony Eligibility Information

 

Eighth grade promotion, although an important milestone, should not be confused with graduation which takes place in high school and in college.  The promotion ceremony is an extracurricular activity similar to a field trip or any other school related event.  We encourage families to celebrate this event in moderation. 

 There is a uniform promotion policy at our three middle schools.  Eighth grade students must meet the following requirements in order to participate in the middle school promotion ceremony and related eighth grade activities. 

 Students must earn satisfactory grades in achievement, citizenship, and work habits on all report cards beginning with the first quarter report card.  Additionally, students must comply with their school’s safety rules including being in uniform and carrying IDs at all times as well as maintaining an acceptable discipline record. 

  • Maintain good grades.  Students with two or more F’s at the Semester marking period and at the 3rd quarter marking period may not be eligible to participate.
  • Maintain good attendance with no excessive tardies or unexcused absences.
  • Students who receive two or more suspensions will be excluded from the promotion ceremony and all related activities.
  • Students must be clear from all financial obligations to the school.  If a student owes for books or any other fee, they will receive a notice of financial obligation which must be taken care of before the promotion ceremony.  Certificates of promotion will be held until a student clears all financial obligations. 
  • Any case that involves special circumstances may be reviewed by a school administrator.

  • Students who are in danger of not qualifying will be notified by their counselor before the 4th Quarter Progress Report grading period so that students have an opportunity to improve their grades.  If a student is in danger of not qualifying, parent/legal guardian will be notified and parent/legal guardian may require a parent conference.
  •  Once the 4th Quarter Progress Report grading period has passed, all students and their parents/legal guardian who DO NOT qualify to participate in promotional activities will be notified.  A student who qualifies based on academics may be disqualified if involved in inappropriate activity at the administrator’s discretion.
