8th Grade Graduation

2023 Graduation Information

Graduation may seem like a long way away but the 8th Grade Graduation Committee is already starting to plan events for May and June 2023 that will create lifelong memories for our students that will be saying goodbye to Kennedy Middle School!

The Class of 2023 8th Grade Events & Activities Committee is responsible for planning/helping with:

  • 8th Grade Sweatshirts – delivered in February/March
  • Great America Trip – date TBA
  • Field Day – date TBA
  • 8th Grade Graduation – Friday, June 9, 2023 at 5pm
  • 8th Grade Graduation Dance – Friday, June 9, 2023 at 7:30-10pm

We need your help to make these events possible! Please email info@kennedycougarspto.org if you are interested in joining the Class of 2023 8th Grade Events & Activities Committee.


A $75 contribution from each 8th grader will ensure that all students have the opportunity to participate in the graduation activities. Your contribution covers transportation and admission to Great America, the Graduation Dance, a picnic/field day event, and graduation gown maintenance. Without your assistance, these events will not be possible.

You can make your contribution online through PayPal or the PTO online store. If you make your payment online, please include a note with the name of your student. You may also pay by check by leaving it in the PTO box in the school office. Please note your student’s name on the check.
