While still a few months away, RPMS teachers and administration realize that the 8th grade Celebration is quickly approaching. This year’s event will take place on Friday, May 16, 2014 from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm at Raymond Park Middle School. This event should not be confused with a graduation ceremony or a prom/formal event. Rather, this evening is a semi-formal event composed of a dinner, fun awards, and a dance to serve as a celebration to end your student’s middle school academic career. Tickets will cost approximately $12.00 to cover the cost of dinner and DJ. In order to allow adequate time for parents, guardians, and students to coordi-nate the attire to be worn to this event, please use the general dress guidelines of wearing clothes that one would wear to church or a nice dinner.
Please address questions and clarifications about the 8th Grade Celebration dress guidelines to Assistant Principal Jon Amones at 532-8983. Eligibility information will be provided to your student during their lunch period at school. Students whose behavior during the school day is inappropriate may cause administration to deny admittance. Students must be present the day of the dance for the entire day in order to attend. Late arriving students and students who leave school early the day of the dance will not be allowed to attend. Thank you in advance for your efforts and support in making sure your student represents and conducts him/herself as a first class gentleman/lady during this event that is sure to be enjoyable for all.
