Moving Up Ceremony Ticket RSVP

May 14, 2018
Each 8th grade student is allotted four tickets due to the space of the graduation location. Please understand, we cannot make any promises on more than 4 tickets at this time as we have over 300 8th graders. However, if enough families indicate they need less than four tickets, we can accommodate those who need more tickets on a first come basis. We are asking that all parents complete the information below as soon as you can–even if you only need the allotted four tickets. Thank you for your understanding.
