8th Grade Crossover Celebration

On Sunday August 9th from 12:00-2:00pm we will hold a drive-up crossover celebration.  Families will drive into the back parking lot at LMS, as you normally would when dropping off a student, and form a single line.  On the route in the parking lot we will have the numbers 2024.  We ask that each car stop at the 2024 and have your soon to be 9th grader get out of the car so that you can take pictures to commemorate their move from middle school to high school. This would be a great opportunity for them to get dressed up for their picture, as they would for the traditional crossover ceremony.  7/8 Academy staff will be in the parking lot, socially distanced, waving and cheering for your student.  
To limit the congestion, I ask that you come to the drive-up celebration at the times listed below, based on last name.  
12:00-12:30pm: Students A-F
12:30-1:00pm: Students G-M
1:00-1:30pm: Students N-S
1:30-2:00pm: Students T-Z
If you are unable to attend at the scheduled time based on last name, you may attend at another time between 12:00 and 2:00.  
For everyone's safety, a student and their family should only get out of the car at the 2024, not at any other point on the route.  I ask that students and families do not congregate on school property. 
I look forward to seeing all of you and your students on Sunday August 9th!
