Dear Eighth Grade Families:
As the year comes to an end, we would like to congratulate each of our eighth graders for
a successful . The last three years have been a tremendous time of growth
for our eigth graders, and we know you and your students are excited about the transition to high school.
As we complete the final few weeks of school, we have a number of events planned for our
One very important element for our June 2nd promotion ceremony is on-site parking.
Parking is extremely limited, and there are not enough spaces for everyone who comes to
promotion to park on campus. The Madison parking lot will be reserved for promotion
parking, with a priority for guests with disabilities. Please arrive early if you will need
assistance with a family member with a disability.
For your convenience, we are providing overflow parking at St. Thomas More Church
and will operate a shuttle service from Cannon Road just east of Melrose to the school.
The shuttle will drop people off in the bus lane at the front of the school and will remain
there to return riders to the church parking lot. By taking the shuttle, you will avoid the traffic lines in and out of the school. The first shuttle will load from the parking area at 9:00a.m. and will continue making circuits until time for the ceremony, which begins at 10:30a.m.
After promotion, family members will board the shuttle in the bus lane in front of the gym.
Please assist us in making the ceremony a special time for all of our families by participating in our convenient shuttle service. Remember that seating is not provided at promotion; you may bring folding chairs or choose to stand if you wish - sun hats are encouraged.
The ceremony is approximately one hour. June 2nd is a minimum day and parents
may leave with their children at the end of promotion.
