Awards and Promotion Assembly
Date: Thursday, June 14th
Time: 8:30 AM - 10:30 Am     

Due to the large number of 8th graders and the auditorium’s seating capacity, we will distribute 2 tickets (no cost) per household to accommodate guests.  Unfortunately, additional tickets will not be available for this affair.  Small children under the age of five may sit on a parent’s lap, but older children must have a ticket.  Siblings who attend Parkville Middle School are not allowed to attend this assembly due to limited seating, and are expected to be in their scheduled classes. 

Tickets will be distributed in late May with a letter fully explaining the assembly procedures.  These tickets will be collected at the door and MUST be presented for entrance into the program.  Guests must be seated by 8:15 AM.  The program will begin promptly at 8:30 AM.  Please stay tuned for updates in May 2018.

We have very few parking spots available on site; therefore, please plan to park on the street, without blocking our neighbors’ driveways.  Baltimore County Police actively patrol the area and will issue citations for violations.

This is a 1/2 day of school; however, parents may submit a written request for their child to be dismissed immediately after the Awards and Promotion Assembly. It is recommended that parents submit written requests in advance of the Awards and Promotion Assembly.  Mr.Glodek will accept requests from students, before and during homeroom, in the main lobby, on Monday, June 11 and Tuesday, June 12.  A special form will be provided.
