8th Grade Promotion

Welcome to our promotion page!
Promotion is an event that celebrates the culmination of our 8th-grade students. It is our hope that the students understand how much we have cherished them as a part of our community and that they return to help us grow our next leaders. As they venture off to high school we send them off with a dance, brunch, & awesome promotion.
To the right is the promotion powerpoint that was presented at our first committee meeting and the promotion packet that was given at SLCs.
