This year's Grade 8 Promotion Ceremony will be on Wednesday, June 15, on the Cheshire High School Turf Field and it will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. Parents should bring students to CHS, and students should be seated with their Teams no later than 8:15 a.m. We have the field until 10:00 a.m. with the ceremony lasting approximately one hour and then students will be able to leave with their parents and do not need to return to school.
Dress Code - All students should wear nice clothes, please no jeans or athletic sneakers.
Please remember that students should adhere to dress code standards per the Student Handbook.
Given the nature of the surface of the Turf Field, it is extremely important
that thinner high heels are not worn (wedge heels are allowed).
We have arranged for Lifetouch Photographers to be at the Ceremony and they will have photos available for purchase via their website a few days after Promotion. There will be both general ceremony photos, as well as photos of the individual students receiving their certificates. More information about photographs will be sent to parents as we get closer to the end of the year.
Parking will be in the Senior Parking Lot by the upper softball field, and we will have handicap parking at the lower parking lot closest to the turf field. There will be another parking area on Elmwood Drive (at the back of the football field).
The CHS Seniors will be using the field for their graduation rehearsal so we need to vacate the premises by 10:00 a.m. In addition, only those chairs provided by the school may be used on the turf.
In the event that it rains, the Promotion will be indoors at CHS and only two guests per student will be allowed to attend.
