8th Grade Promotion 

Dear 8th Grade Parents:

Congratulations on your student’s impending promotion from DuQuoin Middle School.  You should be proud of your student’s accomplishment as they prepare to end this phase of their education.  I would like to take this opportunity to provide you with important information regarding our ceremony.

The Promotion Ceremony is set for Friday, May 20, 2016 at 6:30 PM.  The ceremony will be held at the main grand stand of the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds.  All eighth grade students are to meet in front of the stage in the grand stand by 5:45 PM.  A class picture will be taken at 6:00 PM.  Please ensure that you arrive on time for all events prior to the ceremony.  Students who arrive late will not be in the class picture and may be kept from participating in the ceremony. 

Practice for the ceremony will be held on Wednesday, May 18, 2016 from 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM.  Practice will take place at the grand stand of the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds.  Students will be bussed to the Fair Grounds from school and then will return to school following practice.  Students must participate in the practice in order to attend the Promotion Ceremony.  Please make every attempt to schedule any appointments around this practice.  Students who do not attend practice will not be allowed to participate in the ceremony

Students are required to be dressed appropriately for the graduation ceremony.  Appropriate dress is as follows; ladies must be in a dress, skirt and blouse, or appropriate dress pants and in dress shoes.  Gentlemen are required to wear a dress shirt and dress slacks, along with dress shoes and socks.  Additionally, the student’s gown may not be altered in any fashion for the ceremony. 

Please contact me at 542-2646 extension 1150 if you have any questions regarding the promotion ceremony.
