We would like to have a slide show featuring each of our eighth graders. We are looking for two pictures per student, one photo when your child was a baby/toddler and one photo that is more recent. Please send the pictures to Ms. Hutzell electronically at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than June 10. Thank you!
Two tickets to the Promotion will be sent home with your child on Monday, June 17. These are required for admission. Please be sure to check your child’s backpack for these documents. Tickets are numbered and each student will receive 2 tickets. The auditorium at Long Reach seats 693 people and we need to accommodate 711 people. Staff members will be asked to stand. We wish we had more tickets to offer families, but unfortunately we have no extra tickets. Once your tickets are received, be sure to keep them in a safe place. Due to the strict ticket limit described above, please do not forget or lose your admission tickets; you must present them in order to be admitted to the auditorium at Long Reach. If you do not have your ticket the morning of the Promotion, you will be admitted 15 minutes after the start of the ceremony, pending available seating.
