8th Grade Transitions

This is an exciting time for the 8th graders as they prepare to say goodbye to KLMS and enter HHS.  Here are a few, specific 8th grade events.


April 28th - 8th Grade Semi-Formal, "A Masquerade Ball"

For this occassion, the regular school day dress code does not apply.  

GIRLS: They may wear strapless dresses or dresses with spaghetti straps.  The only restriction on dresses is that the midrif cannot show; 2-piece dresses are acceptable if the midriff is completely covered.  Dresses should be long enough to provide adequate coverage while dancing.  We have had students wear anything from a sun dress to a formal gown.  We do recommend they wear something comfortable (showes included).

BOYS: We have had boys in tuxes and boys in jeans, it is really want they are most comfortable waering for the evening.  

Dinner will be served at 6:30; doors open at 6:00.  The dance ends at 9:00 pm.

The expectations for attending the trip are that from Feb. 15th to May 25th students: have no more than one in school suspension assigned, have no out of school suspensions, have not been placed at the Opportunity Center, do not have excessive tardies, and have no outstanding fines for textbooks or library fines.  Students must be passsing their classes to attend the field trip.
