8th Grade Families,

We are eagerly preparing for in-person promotion ceremonies this year for our 8th grader students advancing on to high school. The transition from middle school to high school is a proud moment for students and their families. 

At Monterey Peninsula Unified School District, our middle schools promotion day is a significant milestone. As part of the promotion process, we are asking our 8th graders to make a commitment to the next four years of their educational journey. While we know students and families have been committed since grade school, we want students to recommit to their future as they walk across the stage to receive their certificate of promotion. More details on this exciting endeavor will follow.

We know having families attend promotion is important and the benefit of hosting them in person is a priority. The district and your student’s middle school are working hard behind the scenes to ensure this year’s promotion ceremonies are special.

All promotions will be held on Thursday, June 2, 2022 as follows:
