Greene Graduation Just 3 Weeks Away - Thursday, June 2nd @ 6 pm
Hello Eighth Grade Families,
8th Grade Promotion is coming up soon! This message contains everything you’ll need to know for our special event as we look forward to celebrating our students.
Our Promotion Ceremony will begin promptly at 6:00 PM and conclude around 7:30 PM on Thursday, June 2. It will take place in Hugh Center Court on the Greene Middle School campus. Our ceremony will be in-person and have open seating for families. At this time, we are not planning to have tickets or a health screener to enter the audience area.
After the ceremony, all Greene 8th Grade students are invited to attend a Promotion Party near the MPR, organized by our PTA. Families will have some time to take pictures with students before students enter the party (which includes dinner, dancing, and fun activities - no tickets needed!). The Greene 8th Grade Promotion Party ends at 10:00 PM.
Prior to the last day of school, we expect students to submit all remaining school assignments and return borrowed materials. We have a special schedule for our last week of school to accommodate our class meetings, yearbook distribution, the return of materials, and practicing for promotion, and a celebratory field day.
Thursday, June 2, is the final day of school and a district-wide minimum day; Greene students will be dismissed at 12:40 PM, with lunch pickup until 1:10 PM. Students who are participating in our promotion ceremony are expected to meet back on campus (at the Greene front lawn) by 5:00 PM to line up in the proper order for the promotion processional.
Additional Promotion Details:
- Interpretation: If your family would like to request language interpretation during the ceremony, such as Mandarin, Spanish, or American Sign Language, please contact Cristina Rodriguez at email@example.com.
- Parking: Parking can be a challenge. We encourage you to come in groups and find parking close to school and walk.
We are looking forward to this memorable occasion!

- Pictures: A professional photographer will take a picture of each student as they walk across the stage. We request that parents not block aisles or the front of the stage area to take photos. You will receive an email with information on ordering pictures following the promotion ceremony.
- Student Attire/Dress: Promotion is a very special time in your child’s life, and we encourage students to look their best. Students should be prepared for cooler evening weather – a sweater or jacket is recommended. Select shoes that will be appropriate for walking across the grass field and stage area.
