Promotion Criteria and Ceremony Information 2019

(call 602-896-6100 w/questions)

 

This informational sheet is not an invitation, nor does it confirm eligibility.  Final eligibility notices will be sent home May 13th

 

Purpose: the Promotion Ceremony at Mountain Sky is a celebration of the students’ completion of the 8th grade academic program in the W.E.S.D.

Schedule: please see below for specific times.  Also know that two teams are being recognized, so it is critical that we clear the gym and parking lots quickly and safely.

Criteria: a student is eligible to participate in the Promotion Ceremony if an average of 1.0 in each academic area is achieved (math, science, social studies, language arts) for four quarters.  If a student has NOT earned an average of 1.0 in these academic areas, he/she will not be eligible to participate in the Promotion Ceremony.  Please call 896-6100 for information about summer school.

Guests: please limit the number of vehicles and guests invited, as parking and seating are limited.   Up to four guests may attend per student (we encourage carpooling) and parking is available in our east and west parking lots and on the field east of the outdoor basketball courts.  Limousines are NOT allowed, and security will have these vehicles removed.  Due to limited seating in the gym, please do not stay for Promotion Ceremonies for anyone other than family. 

Dress: please have your student dress in what would be considered appropriate clothing for a nice event at school.  We discourage formal wear/prom wear, which should be saved for high school.  Please have your student wear comfortable shoes as walking is involved in the ceremony.
