8th Grade Promotion Information

December 15, 2017

Dear Super Cool 8th grade families,

It is with great excitement we announce that Kenilworth’s eighth grade promotion ceremony is scheduled for

MONDAY, MAY 21, 2018 AT 6:00 PM.

All students participating will need to be at the school at 5:00pm.
We will open the auditorium at 5:00pm to start seating our guests.

Due to the limited space in our auditorium, fire codes and in an effort to ensure an enjoyable experience for all in attendance, each student will receive 4 tickets for guests. We will not be admitting any person (with the exception of lap children) into the auditorium without a ticket. Balloons will need to be parked/stored in the front office area during the ceremony. This is to help everyone have a view of the stage and also as a safety effort to keep the balloons from landing on the ceiling lights creating a concern for a fire.

As you are preparing for the ceremony, we would like to remind you of the student dress code for this event before you begin to shop for promotion attire for your student.


  • Dress shirt (tucked in)
  • Dress pants with belt (no jeans, Levis)
  • Clothing should be a good fit to the body size
  • No hats/caps
  • Shoes (no sandals)
  • Ties are encouraged


  • Shoulders must be completely covered, no spaghetti straps
  • No bare midriff
  • No low cut tops
  • Length of dress/skirt must not be above fingertips
  • Dress pants allowed
  • No hats/caps
  • Shoes (no flip flops, low heels highly recommended)

Although eighth grade promotion is a special time, it is not a formal ceremony. For this reason, prom dresses and tuxedos are not appropriate. Feel free to have your child bring in clothing to the school to make sure that the clothes are appropriate for the promotion ceremony before you remove the tags and commit to their purchase.

Failure to abide by the above-indicated dress code may result in your child not being able to participate in the promotion ceremony. The final decision will be left up to the discretion of teachers and the principal at the time of the ceremony. If you have any additional questions, please contact your student’s homeroom teacher.

Thank you,

Anthony Pietrangeli
Proud Principal
