Promotion - Grade 8

Dear 8th Grade Parents,

We are thrilled to be celebrating your children, our Joyce Kilmer School class of 2021, this upcoming Tuesday evening at 7 pm right here at Joyce Kilmer school in a first ever outdoor promotion ceremony!

The ceremony will take place in front of the school along West Church Street. Students should arrive no earlier than 6:30 pm and report to the side APR doors nearest the garden. The steps in front of the gymnasium doors will serve as the "stage" for the Student Council as they will lead the ceremony and introduce the guest speakers. The graduates will process from the doors of the APR, down past the rain garden, to the sidewalk, and from there, they will come up the steps and go to their seats, which will be located in the front of the gym steps. The parental seating (2 designated seats per family) will be located just beyond the graduates' seating. All assigned seating will be sectioned off. Beyond the parental seating, we will have standing/bring your own chair seating for any other spectators. All are welcome! Seating for the ticketed family members will begin at 6:45 pm. We ask that you form a line nearest the electric sign as a staff member will accompany the groups of 2 to their seats.

Again, we are truly excited to have this ceremony here at Joyce Kilmer school as typically, the students return to their Parkview roots for their promotion ceremony that usually takes place in the Parkview gym.

Students are expected in school at regular time for the duration of the early dismissal days on both Wednesday and Thursday.   Students should wear their class of shirts on Wednesday as we will be taking a group photo.   The 8th grade students will be provided promotional certificates and any promotion awards received on Thursday.   In person 8th grade students will hand in their chromebooks on Tuesday morning prior to promotion rehearsal.  The remote 8th graders' chromebooks will be collected, and any promotion awards and certificates will be provided to them on Thursday.  Please look for sign up times as they will be sent through Parentsquare.

We look forward to seeing you all, and to celebrating our amazing JK class of 2021!

Be well,
Mr. Veit
