Our annual 8th grade awards will be held on Wednesday June 4th beginning at 9:30 a.m. in the school cafeteria. Parents are invited to attend this event where our 8th grade students will receive their various awards for the year. Due to the size of our 8th grade class (over 450) and the capacity of our school cafeteria seating is very limited and has ended up being standing room only in the past. Please mark your calendars to enjoy this event with your 8th grader.
