8th Grade Promotion Information

Hello Mustangs!


Promotion 2020 will be a virtual ceremony on Tuesday, June 9th. All 8th graders will have the opportunity to submit their own photo along with a message of gratitude and/or support for their classmates or families. Our Video Production class will create the virtual ceremony with student speakers, awards, and most important, pictures of the promoting class of 2020. This pre-recorded video will play on June 9th at 10am and students will be able to watch and re-watch at their discretion. 


Below is how students can begin preparing for their virtual promotion:


Virtual Promotional Ceremony

  • All 8th Graders are invited to submit a photo of themselves dressed in appropriate attire. Students have the option to have a written sign with a message of gratitude to another student and/or family member or parents can submit a message to their student. If a student doesn’t submit a photo, their yearbook photo will be used. Message can be either in the photo with a sign or banner, or sent separately to be added as text on slide. If sending separately, text cannot be longer than 30 characters.
