8th Grade-End of the Year Information

Graduation Date
The graduation date and time for Mead 8th grade students has been approved for Thursday, May 24, 2018, at 6:00 PM at Conant High School. In the coming weeks, additional information and details regarding graduation and end-of-the year activities will be mailed home.  Please note that tickets are not required for graduation, but in the interest of space, we respectfully ask that only immediate family members are in attendance. May 24 is a full day of school and is the last day of attendance for 8th grade students.

8th Grade Students – No Missing Assignments

Per School Board policy, eighth grade students will not be permitted to participate in the graduation ceremony if they have any missing assignments.  Once the graduation date is set, we will send home more information about specific check-in dates for students. In the meantime, please help us by visiting the parent portal frequently and talking to your child about the importance of doing all homework. Although we are early in the third trimester, we want to ensure that all students are able to participate in the year-end celebrations and graduation ceremony. Thank you for your support.

Eighth Grade Dance

On Friday, May 11, 2018, our eighth grade students are invited to attend an end-of-the-year dance at Mead Junior High.  The event will run from 6:30-8:30 PM and will require parent permission. Student tickets will be available for purchase in the weeks leading up to the dance. As a reminder, students need to maintain academic and behavioral expectations in order to attend.
