8th grade promotion activities

Dear 8th grade Cal Young families,


Many of you have invested three years into supporting students through Cal Young Middle School.  For our 8th grade students and families, our time together at CY is sadly almost complete.


While health and safety protocols continue to limit some of the experiences we can offer for promoting 8th grade students and their families, there are some planned activities to help us say goodbyes.


Activity #1 Student Only Assemblies on June 15th and 17th


The 8th grade staff at CYMS will celebrate our 8th graders in two separate assemblies for blue cohort (2:25pm on June 15th) and green cohort (2:25pm on June 17th).  Unfortunately, the assemblies will only involve students (no families) due to COVID-19 protocols.  The assembly will include recognitions, remarks, and video/slideshows of 8th graders.  The events will either be recorded and shared or live streamed for live viewing by anyone outside the event  (more details to follow).


Activity #2Drive Thru Promotion Celebration on June 17th from 5pm- 6:30pm See Attachment


8th grade students and families should read over the attached document regarding staging for the event, route for driving, and opportunities along the way!  The event must stagger start times to ensure no traffic situations on Gilham Road.   Community of Christ Church has graciously offered to allow CYMS families to “stage” in their parking lot prior to release to drive through the promotion route (again, See Attachment for details).  To start the line up, please enter the South entry to Community of Christ Church parking lot and await direction from staff.  We have staggered the arrival by 8th grader last name (alphabetical).  There will be promotion programs, certificates, music, CY teachers/staff, and picture taking opportunities. 


Thank you for supporting Cal Young Middle School staff and students.



Chris Mitchell
