8th Grade Continuation

Tile Painting tradition

Eighth graders will have the opportunity to come to the school to participate in the tile painting tradition! These tiles will hang in the hallway upstairs at Slavens. This will be done in shifts, with 8th grade teachers outside, and socially distant from others. 10 students at a time. Sign up HERE for your child's slot!

Continuation packets

After tile painting, students will be given a packet of information and goodies to prepare for and celebrate continuation. If your child won't make it to the painting day, please click HERE to email us to schedule a time to come and pick up the packet for your child.

Yard Sign Delivery

Your 8th grader will be receiving a celebratory yard sign in a couple of weeks. We will be dropping these off on your front porch so that you may choose where you would like to display it!
