8th Grade Class of 2021!

8th Grade 2021 Reminders and Activities

Fourth Quarter, for 8th graders, is a very exciting time and to have to revise those milestones is so difficult!  We have been eagerly trying to make revisions to the activities we have planned to celebrate the impending end to the school year, and we hope that each 8th grader will take part. CONGRATULATIONS to the 8th Grade Class of 2021!

Drive-Thru Advancement Schedule - Wed., May 26// 8am-11am & 12pm-3pm

 8th Grade Advancement Certificates along with other award items will be available for drive-through pickup during a specifically scheduled time, based on Advisory classes.  

Here’s the schedule for when your student’s items are available for drive-through pickup in the lower parking lot

  • 8-11am - Advisory Teachers: Bathke, Christiansen, Diaz-Yates, Kalvass, Mainarick, Moncrief, Nieves, Pinedo, Roberts, Rutherford, Shoptaw, Siefert, Sindel, Thomas, Zamora
  • 12-3pm - Advisory Teachers: Alcaraz, Alexander, Deisenroth, DeYoung, Fikse, Forbes, Smith, Wihl

✤ Attending during the appropriate time slot will count for students’ Asynchronous Attendance on this Wednesday.  8th Grade students will not need to also attend their regularly scheduled Advisory session at 10am.  

If your student does not plan to attend the Drive-Thru Advancement, they will still need to attend an Advisory session specifically for 8th Graders (not with their regular Advisory teacher).  The link will be available in GC later.
