8th Grade Graduation

Dear Families of our 8th Grade Students,

We have been working on the final details for graduation, and we have decided to move the event back to our school. We want our students to be celebrated in the school they have attended for 9 years.

This past winter when we were making plans for our summer construction project, Dave Kimmel offered to let us use Collins Perley for our 8th grade graduation. Knowing that the construction project was going to impact the whole school, I accepted his offer.

Graduation is June 16th and our gym will be available. Having the ceremony at a remote site is causing many logistical problems. This week I have polled several people responsible for making this event special for our students, and the overwhelming consensus has been that we want to say goodbye to our 8th grade in our school.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call. We are looking forward to celebrating our 8th graders with the tradition of a St. Albans City School Graduation. They deserve nothing less.

Thank you for your support,

Joan Cavallo
