Dear Families and Guardians of our Class of 2019,
Tomorrow is our 8th Grade Transition Ceremony at 10:00 am. Only students in Grade 8 are expected in school tomorrow, June 25th.
We are writing with an update regarding tomorrow morning's transition ceremony. Due to the pending weather forecast, we have opted to hold the transition ceremony INDOORS tomorrow morning. The ceremony will be held in the ALMS GYMNASIUM and attendees will need a ticket to enter the gymnasium. As you know, each student was given TWO TICKETS for their family members to attend.
Please be advised, the ceremony will also be broadcast, live, in our main auditorium and we will allow folks into the auditorium beginning at 9:30 am. Please also note, our auditorium can seat 810 people and our gym is prepared to seat all of our students transitioning to high school, and the people who have been given tickets to attend. We are also pleased to let you know that our district will be broadcasting the ceremony for folks to watch, live, over the internet.
We know this is not what we were all hoping for, but believe that tomorrow will be a great day, despite what Mother Nature may have in store.
Some friendly reminders:
- All 8th grade students included in the ceremony should arrive to school at their regular arrival time (transportation is available for student to arrive and dismiss)
- All 8th grade students included in the ceremony should report to their room assignments, which has them organized by their 7th period class.
- All 8th grade students included in the ceremony should report with their cap and gown. There is no need to bring any book-bags, pocketbooks, or extraneous items.
- Folks should consider carpooling, as parking will be limited based on the large number of people expected at the ceremony.
School administration will not be able to field inquiries regarding extra tickets at this late notice. We apologize for the inconvenience and will work to insure we utilize all available seating.
We are proud of our Class of 2019 and look forward to seeing you tomorrow morning at 10:00 am.
The ALMS Administrative Team
