• 8th Grade End of the Year Activities


    Plans for the 8th grade end of year events are underway!

    • The 8th grade semi-formal dance will be held on Friday, June 5, 2020, from 7:00-9:30 pm in the Belmont Ridge main gymnasium.  
    • The 8th grade field day will be held on Thursday, June 4, 2020, from 9:00-2:00 at the Evergreen Mills Sportsplex.  
    • The 8th grade promotion and recognition ceremony will be held on Monday, June 8, 2020, at Riverside High School.  The 8th grade promotion and recognition ceremony will begin at 7:00 pm.


     In order to provide items such as decorations, DJ, and photo booth for the dance and transportation to and from Evergreen Mills Sportsplex, lunch during the field day, and rental of Evergreen Mills Sportsplex for the day, we will be collecting a $25 fee per child to cover all expenses.  We will also be seeking volunteers and chaperones to assist with supervision during the dance and field day.  More information, including permission forms and waivers, will be provided to students and parents after spring break.  The 8th grade end of year events committee thanks you for your cooperation as your child's time in middle school comes to an end.  Thank you for your continued support!
