Promotion Flyer

Attention 8th Grade Desert Sky Parents:  Promotion for Desert Sky 8th Grade Students will be on Wednesday, May 20nd at 7:00 pm at Deer Valley High School, outdoors on their football field.  Students need to be there promptly by 6:15 pm to line up with their teacher.  Students must adhere to the dress code for this event.  Students who do not follow the dress code may lose the opportunity to participate in the ceremony.  Guest seating at the stadium is done on a first come, first served basis and there is no restriction on the number of guests allowed per student.  Please keep in mind however, that guest seating is outdoors on the bleachers. 

Please note that according to the district’s promotion and retention standards, students must pass all classes (based upon the yearly average) in which they are enrolled in order to be promoted.  Behavioral expectations must also be met.  Depending on the severity of any administrative referral incident, a decision will be made by administration regarding whether or not the student will be permitted to participate in the promotion ceremony.

If your student is not able to attend the promotion ceremony the certificates may be picked up in the school office from 7 am to 3:30 pm on Thursday, May 21 thru Friday, May 29, 2019.  No certificates will be given out prior to the ceremony.
