8th Grade Recognition Events

Hello, 8th grade families. We want to remind you about important end-of-year events for our 8th grade students and families.

Friday, June 3 - 6-8 PM: Dance and Party

PLEASE NOTE THE CORRECTED TIME. Students must bring a signed invitation showing they have your permission to attend. They must be picked up by 8 pm. The semi-formal dance and party will take place in the Ramsey Cafeteria. The dance will be hosted by A-List Entertainment. A-List does an incredible job of encouraging all the kids to dance and join in the fun, by fostering a sense of inclusion. There will be a DJ, lights, dancers, a photo booth and light refreshments and beverages will be served. Students are advised to eat dinner beforehand.

We are still seeking parent chaperones. You can sign up here.

Monday, June 6: Valleyfair Field Trip

Students will go to Valleyfair on Monday, June 6. Busses will return to Ramsey between 5:30-5:45. Students must have transportation home from Ramsey by 5:45 pm.

Tuesday, June 7, 9 AM: Morning Recognition Ceremony

This ceremony, in the newly renovated theater, will celebrate and recognize our students’ achievements as their middle school experience concludes. The ceremony is open to families and will be followed by a cake and punch reception in the cafeteria from 10-11 AM.

After the ceremony, students may leave to go home if signed out by a parent. Students who turn in a signed note from their parent by this Friday will also be allowed to leave with another parent or to provide their own transportation home. Notes should be turned in to your child's advisory teacher. As a reminder, we have limited seating (about 500 seats for 250 families), so please be mindful of this as you decide who will attend. Siblings are expected to be in class that day and will not be allowed into the ceremony.

If yo have any questions, please contact your child's advisor.
