TTUSD Eighth-Grade Promotion Photo Campaign!
Our eighth-grade promotion ceremony is right around the corner. It’s an exciting time and a big milestone for our students and families. We have a lot of proud parents taking pictures of their kids at eighth-grade promotion and we want to build on this excitement and share this positive energy with our community!
When you take your eighth-grade promotion photos, we invite you to email photos to firstname.lastname@example.org so your photo(s) can be featured in our eighth-grade photo album. In the subject line, please include your child’s school and event (for example North Tahoe School Eighth-grade promotion). We'll be sharing this on our Facebook page as well as on our website and with the Sierra Sun and we'd love to have your kids in it!
Also, if you're posting photos on Twitter, be sure to add the hashtag #TTUSD8thgradepromotion.
PROMOTION CEREMONY DRESS REQUIREMENT
Attention 8th Grade Parents! Promotion is on June 21st at 6:00pm on the south patio at ACMS.

Tuxedos, jeans, shorts, tee shirts, and overalls are not acceptable. Dresses or skirt and blouse as worn to a nice restaurant are appropriate. Strapless, spaghetti strap, off-the-shoulder, backless, and formal dresses are not acceptable. The intent of the dress code for this event is to avoid the purchase of formal attire.
