8th Grade Graduation Events

Sign up to help the Graduation Committee!

Contribute to the Graduation Activities Now!

Graduation may seem like a long way away but the 8th Grade Graduation Committee is already starting to plan events for May and June 2020 that will create lifelong memories for our students that will be saying goodbye to Kennedy Middle School!

The Graduation Committee is responsible for planning:

  • Field trip to Great America in May 2020
  • Graduation Dance immediately after graduation in June 2020
  • Field Day events the last week of school
  • Graduation Gown cleaning

We need your help to make these events possible!


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 cleaning. Without your assistance, these events will not be possible.

Your cash or credit/debit $75 Contribution can be made at Maze Day!

Please see us at the PTO table to make your contribution right away! Or, pay no later than April 15, 2020 (don’t worry, we will remind you)

Your cash or check payment can be dropped off at the school office in the PTO lock box anytime. Please feel free to make your contribution in three $25 installments: at Maze Day, in December, and in April. Be sure to put your child’s first and last name on the check or cash envelope.


8th grade parent chaperones will be needed for the Great America field trip and the picnic/field event. The Graduation Dance requires all 8th grade parents to participate in decorating the gym and cleaning up afterwards. Look for more information on volunteering as we get closer to the events.
