Semi-Formal and Promotion Ceremony Letter

It’s that time of year again, the end of the school year is quickly approaching and that means end of grade testing followed by a time of celebration! We would like to send our eighth graders off with a semiformal dance and a promotion ceremony. Students will be given four tickets each that they can use for family members. Before this event can occur, there are several things you must know:

The dance will occur Thursday, June 6 from 6:00—8:00pm

Students will need to be picked up by 7:50 to 8:00pm sharp!
Students will vote on this year’s theme during their enrichment.

The promotion ceremony will be Monday, June 10th at 9am
in the LGMMS gymnasium. Students will have four tickets.
