Eighth Grade End-of-Year Festivities Regulations
Aurora Public Schools has specific guidelines for participation in eighth grade activities that are followed at Aurora Hills Middle School. Eighth grade activities are a celebration of our 8th grade students moving from middle school to high school. Students earn the privilege to participate in these activities at the end of the year through their academic performance, behavior, and attendance. We appreciate your support in our endeavor to develop positive characteristics and maintain high expectations.
The following are the criteria established for participation in the celebration activities:
A student may not attend the celebration activities if he/she has more than a total of 5 tardies the 4th quarter of school of which no more than 3 are in any one class period.
A student may not attend the celebration activities if he/she has more than 2 unexcused absences from any one class period during the 4th quarter of school. Back excusing will not be accepted.
It will be left to the administration’s discretion to determine if a student’s involvement in the Community Attendance Review Board (CARB) process or involvement in court may attend the celebration activities.
As always, appropriate behavior is expected and will be rewarded. Therefore a student may not attend the celebration activities is he/she is assigned Saturday School, In-school or Out of School Suspension during the 4th quarter. This includes disciplinary action due to dress-code and student identification badge violations.
Students may not attend continuation activities if he/she has more than two “0’s, 1’s and/or 2’s” as work habit marks during the 4th quarter of school. Teachers will declare work habits scores 2 days prior to the celebration.
Students that do not meet the above criteria are not eligible to attend or participate in any of the eighth grade end-of-year activities.
