Rim Country Middle School will celebrate eighth-grade promotion at 2 p.m., Thursday, May 27.
This year, like last year, the event is a drive-thru program.
“We’ve had a lot of positive feedback from parents from last year. Many of our stakeholders have expressed that the drive-thru promotion gave a better opportunity to recognize each student individually,” said RCMS principal Jennifer Murphy.
She added the school had to take other factors into consideration — for example, the auditorium is not available for use due to construction; the football field was not an option either since high school graduation is already putting a strain on the grass that is under repair.
Parents of RCMS graduates can begin staging their vehicles in the high school stadium parking beginning at 1 p.m. The school’s resource officers will be there to assist with creating a staging line to mitigate traffic issues, Murphy said.
“We are excited to honor our eighth-grade students as they move forward into a new chapter of high school,” she concluded.
