The 8th Grade Promotion Ceremony will begin at 12:30 p.m. in the Competition Gym, and parents and guests may enter through either the school's front doors or the gymnasium doors on the east side of the building. Parking will be available in front of the new Magnolia Intermediate all the way back to the field house. The space immediately in front of the gym doors will be blocked off for the buses that will arrive prior to our end-of-the-day dismissal. In the event more parking is needed, parents may also use the faculty lot behind the building and the overflow lot, which will be located across the street from MJH in the field next to the MISD Educational Service Center. There will be police and staff members to direct traffic in each of these parking areas. We are reserving the parking spaces in front of our building for the handicapped and elderly. However, parents may also drop guests off at the front doors by way of the circle drive before parking behind the building or across the street.
If arriving at the front doors, members of our National Junior Honor Society will be there to escort groups of parents and guests to the gym. Those entering the gymnasium doors on the east side of the building will be immediately directed into the Competition Gym. In either case, parents and guests will be issued a visitors sticker that must be worn at all times while inside MJH.
We anticipate that the ceremony will take around an hour and a half. Afterward, parents in attendance will be invited to join their student in our practice gym for pictures and to pick-up awards. The practice gym will be set-up with multiple backdrops for students and their families to take pictures at once.
At the conclusion of the ceremony, parents are welcome to take their student home with them. If you intend to provide a ride for any child other than your own, we ask that you please bring a written note from that child's parents and drop it off at the front desk when you arrive.
We are looking forward to this opportunity to recognize the hard work and accomplishments of ALL our 8th grade students.
