8th Grade Events

8th Grade Promotion Ceremony

June 12, 2017 6:30-8:00pm at MIHS

The Promotion Ceremony is a celebration for families. It is held at Mercer Island High School in the gym and runs like a graduation-type ceremony. The purpose of the night is to honor our 8th graders and spend time reflecting on the last three years of learning while at Islander Middle School. Eight 8th grade students will share their memories throughout the evening, and we will hear music from our Jazz Band, our Choir and our Orchestra.  All 8th grade students will be recognized throughout the night by having their names read as they shake hands with administrators and receive a Keepsake Folder.  The Promotion Ceremony begins at 6:30 pm. We ask that all students arrive at MIHS no later than 6:00 pm. The event is ‘semiformal’. We ask that students choose attire that best respects themselves, their families and the fact that this is an 8th grade event. The floor of the gym is covered with a loose carpet, and that can make walking in any type of heels a bit of a challenge.
