Each junior high school holds a graduation ceremony for eighth grade students. The exact date is set in spring. To participate in the ceremony, the student must complete and turn in all academic assignments. It is the student’s responsibility to turn in all late or missing assignments. In addition, all charges for lost or damaged items must be received by the end of the last regularly scheduled school day prior to their graduation ceremony. Extreme inappropriate behavior could also cause a student to be excluded from the graduation ceremony at the discretion of school administrators.
