    The eighth grade class of Chet F. Harritt is rapidly approaching end-of-the-year activities and promotion exercises.  We are providing the following information so that it may be used to assist your family in planning for these special events.

    PROMOTION EXERCISES are scheduled for Monday, June 12 at 9:00a.m.  The eighth grade students will have the opportunity to be in a class photo to be taken by Hagar Photography. Students will receive fliers approximately two weeks prior to promotion. The cost will be between $15.00 and $24.00 with checks made out to Hagar Photography and include postage to be mailed to your home during the summer. 

    The promotion exercises will begin at 9:00 a.m. at Big Rock Park, directly across from the school.  There will be seating for approximately 200 guests (*please see additional information about chair auction below).  The promotion ceremony is expected to last one hour.  Parking will be tight so please plan ahead and consider street parking or walking.

    DRESS ATTIRE While the day's activities are "dress," they are not formal. Formal attire would be out of place at an 8th grade promotion.  This is not a high school formal or semi-formal event, instead, a nice dress event.  In the interest of the eighth grade students, the following guidelines have been adopted as appropriate attire for the day's activities:

    BOYS:            Dress pants, dress shirt, tie (optional), coat/jacket (optional)

                            Well-groomed hair (no hats or caps)

                            Tuxedo rentals are inappropriate.

     

    GIRLS:          Dress nicely: slacks, skirts, knee-length dresses. 

                            Spaghetti strap or halter dresses must include wraps (no strapless dresses allowed without a wrap or covering)

                            No flip-flops allowed (dressy sandals with straps on back are ok)

                            If you have any questions, please ask!

     

    It is expected that these standards will be met by each student so that he or she will feel comfortable participating in these activities and abide by the guidelines set forth in our school handbook.  Upon completion of the promotion ceremony, students may be signed out by their parents.

    DISNEYLAND As part of the promotion privileges, students who are deemed eligible are invited to participate in an 8th grade fieldtrip to Disneyland on Thursday, June 8.  The event price will include a charter bus and admission cost.  

    8TH GRADE DINNER DANCE  As part of the promotion privileges, students who are deemed eligible are invited to participate in the Dinner Dance at Carlton Oaks Country Club on Wednesday, June 7.  The event will last from 5:30-7:30p.m.  Parent volunteers are needed to assist with set up, starting at 3:30p.m. and clean-up at 7:30p.m.  Parents will not be participating in the actual dinner dance event- only students and staff.

    ELIGIBILITY  As per the Santee School District Board of Education promotion policy, students must maintain a 2.00 grade point average in all three areas: scholarship, effort, and citizenship, in order to participate in the above mentioned promotion activities and privileges.  Also, a student receiving three or more out of school suspensions will refrain from participation in the excursion activities.  If a student is ineligible, they have been notified by mail and will have communication from the school for grade monitoring.

    FUNDRAISING  To assist with the multiple costs, fundraisers have or will be available to help offset the final totals
