Here is some important information for the parents of our promotion-eligible eighth graders.
Our eighth graders will be walking to Porterville High School on Thursday, May 30th, at 8:30 AM for promotion practice. Please be aware that students who do not attend practice will not be allowed to participate in the ceremony. After promotion practice, the students will be escorted to Zalud Park for the eighth-grade barbeque. The students will return to Bartlett School at 2:30.
The promotion ceremony will begin at 9:00 AM on Friday, May 31st, at the Buck Shaffer auditorium at Porterville High School. Students participating in the ceremony should report directly to the auditorium on the morning of the ceremony by 8:30 AM. Students arriving late may not be allowed to participate. Once again, students participating in the ceremony should report directly to the auditorium on Friday morning, not to Bartlett School. All students must arrive before 8:30 am.
We would like for all families to keep the following guidelines in mind as you prepare for your students to participate:
Please make sure that your students dress appropriately for the ceremony. Boys should wear clothing that is clean and of the proper size. Pants should be worn around the waist and should not sag. Shirts should be clean and free of any print.
Girls should also adhere to the dress code. Students wearing clothing that is too short or too revealing will not be allowed on stage. Spaghetti straps, strapless, or backless garments will not be allowed. Young ladies wearing heels are advised to bring the shoes to practice on Thursday morning. Students may bring their clothes to administration for approval.
Families should also be aware that balloons will not be allowed in the auditorium. Air horns and other noise-making devices should also not be brought into the auditorium.
Please call us at 782.7100 if you have any questions about promotion activities. We look forward to a great event.
