PROMOTION CEREMONY FOR ALL & MATERIALS DROP OFF FOR DISTANCE LEARNING

MONDAY, JUNE 7TH:

Please arrive at your designated time and use the map (included) to drop off materials (Distance Learning 8th Graders only) and to participate in our walk-through promotion (All 8th Grade Students). Cars will enter into the staff parking lot on Merritt Drive. See map here

Graduation Timings

All 8th graders will be dropped off in the main parking lot on Merritt. Parents will drive through and let their students out. Students will enter campus at their designated gate and make their way to one of the two areas:

  1. Online 8th graders will enter campus at the first gate in the staff parking lot, drop off materials and tech, then make their way to the quad to pick up their promotion certificate, goodie bag, and have their photograph taken in front of a special Lawson backdrop. Eighth graders will also have another photo taken at a balloon arch with a cardboard cutout of Mr. Bragg! **ONLINE STUDENTS ONLY: PLEASE PRINT THIS FORM AND RETURN IT WITH YOUR MATERIALS**

  2. Hybrid Learners, who will already be dropping materials in the mornings at school, will enter at the main gate (by the office) and make their way directly to the quad to pick up their promotion certificate, goodie bag, and have their photograph taken in front of a special Lawson backdrop. Eighth graders will also have another photo taken at a balloon arch with a cardboard cutout of Mr. Bragg!

All 8th graders will exit campus at the gate between the event center and electives building. PTA is generously covering the cost of the photographer, balloon arch, and goodie bags for all 8th graders.

PARENTS: Please pull into the neighborhood and walk back to the promotion walkthrough exit to meet your child. That bus circle will be closed to cars so you will have plenty of space to wait for your students there.

PTA has also ordered lawn decorations that will be available from 12:30 PM-8:00 PM. The lawn decorations can be used as a photo backdrop. Parents are welcome to take pictures with their students. You can take photos during the walk through celebration times after you meet your child at the exit, or come back after 3:30 to take photos! The lawn decorations will be on the grass outside the school office.

FAQs

Do I need my student ID for the walk through promotion?

No, 8th graders will not need to bring their ID.

Do my parents come with me for the walk through promotion?

No, parents must stay in the car at all times. Parents should park their cars in the neighborhood and wait for their students at the exit to the walk-through. There will also be a second materials drop off time Wednesday, June 9th, from 9:00-12:00 in case 8th graders are waiting too long and may miss their walk through promotion time.

What if we are unable to participate on June 7th?

Promotion certificates will be available in the office during regular office hours starting June 10th until June 17th.
