Promotion Information

8th grade Falcon parents, I have some very exciting news. At the February 23rd board meeting we were given direction to talk about 8th grade promotion and discuss how we can have a student in person ceremony. We have had a series meetings since the 23rd as administrators to discuss what this ceremony could look like and how we could proceed safely. I wanted to let all of you know that we WILL be having a ceremony on the morning of Wednesday May 19th.

This ceremony will be the traditional ceremony that we have had in the past with a few changes. We will be having an individual ceremony for each of the core teams. Parents will not be allowed to be in attendance, however we will live stream the event as well as posting a recorded video onto our website by the end of the day on Thursday the 20th for those that cannot view the live stream.

We will be holding this ceremony in our main gymnasium due to the fact that all 5 high schools will be having turf put into their stadiums and the stadiums will not be available for the month of May. 8th grade students will receive a certificate as well as a promotion program. 8th grade students will then be released at 11:35 am on that day. We will be getting more information out about details when we get closer to that day.

Again thank you for you continued support and GO FALCONS!

DVOA HMS students are invited to participate in the ceremony. Please email Sara Stevens at by Friday May 7th if you are wanting to have your student promote on that day at Hillcrest. We will be having your student promote with the core that they were last associated with on the campus of Hillcrest. We will get more detailed information to those that want to participate the week of May 10th.
