 8th GRADE DANCE:  Following the promotion ceremony, students meeting the eligibility requirements are invited to a dance.  This dance will be held in the upper gym at McKay High School and is for 8th grade students only. Parents please plan on leaving after the promotion ceremony and returning after the dance to pick up your child. We are asking parents of 8th graders to each contribute $5.00 to cover the cost of the party. This is a voluntary donation, but would assist in the success of the evening’s event. You can send the money in with your student to the main office.
