8th Grade Promotion Information for 8th Grade Parents
What an exciting time! Your child will be promoting to 9th grade, and Russell will be celebrating this special milestone at Milpitas High School on May 31st at 4:00 p.m. This ceremony is a privilege for all students who have met the promotion requirements. To promote from grade 8 to high school, students must have an overall grade point average of 1.75 in all classes for the combined three trimesters.
To assist you with proper planning of the event, please note the following schedule.
Because students will be wearing a promotion gown during the ceremony, the only dress code reminder is that no heels may be worn on the MHS field. Medals received at the Awards Assembly should be worn. Additional decorative leis may be worn during the ceremony.
Come join us on May 25 at 9 a.m. to honor our students.
