To the Parents of Horner’s 8th Grade Class of 2016,
The 8th Grade Promotion Ceremony for Horner Junior High School’s Class of 2016 will be held on Tuesday, June 7th from 5:00 ~ 6:00 PM. The ceremony will be in the grassy area in back of the gym. The students will be provided seats. PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN LAWN CHAIR if you wish to sit during the ceremony.
Parking will not be allowed on the Horner campus due to the spaces needed for the set-up crew and staff members. Parking is limited in the area. Please park at Hirsch Elementary (right next door), at the Irvington Presbyterian Church (corner of Chapel and Irvington), or on the surrounding streets; DO NOT BLOCK DRIVEWAYS.
We have hired a professional photographer to take a photo of each promoting student to avoid disruption during the ceremony. Please remain in your seats so that everyone can enjoy watching their child walk on stage, as well as keep emergency access lanes open. The pictures will be available to purchase on-line. The contact information for the photographer will be provided.
Students are encouraged to dress nicely for the promotion ceremony. Formal attire such as strapless dresses or tuxedos are not appropriate. Jeans will not be permitted. Spike-heeled shoes are not recommended due to the grass venue.
The 8th Grade Promotion Party will be held on Friday, June 3rd from 6:00-9:00 p.m. in the Horner Courtyard. A ticket will be issued to eligible students and must be presented at the door with your Student ID or Gold Card to gain entry to the Promotion party. A parent/guardian and student signature is required on the ticket to gain entry. Casual attire is suggested for this party, as there will be music, games, food, and photo booth. A photo booth and photographers will be present to capture the special memories of this event. Photo booth pictures will be printed on-site during the evening, other photos will be made available online. There will be a coat check for personal items.
At the end of the party, we ask that you be careful with the decorations as we intend to keep them for future events. Also, many items are rented and must be returned in good condition. Please be respectful as current students’ actions affect future events.
Thanks to the Horner Junior High PTSA Promotion Committee and all the Horner families who made all this possible with their generous donations and time.
We look forward to a wonderful event.
Horner Jr. High Principal
