Eighth Grade Year


Eighth Grade Promotion Dance and Ceremony

The dance will be held in the TMMS Commons on Wednesday, June 19th from 5:30-8:00 p.m. A group of parents will be putting together decorations and refreshments. The theme for this year is TBD, voted on by the 8th graders. Dance tickets will be on sale Tuesday, June 18th & Wednesday, June 19th before school and during lunch for $5.00. This dance is for current Thunder Mountain 8th graders only.

*Please do not arrive at the dance in a limo.  This is meant to be a casual evening.

*8th grade students must meet all requirements for promotion, including having paid all fines (end of the year textbook  and library fines, etc.), before being allowed to participate in the promotion dance and ceremony.

Dance Dress Code
This dance is a special evening and students should “dress up”.  However, please note that this is not a formal dance.  Tuxedos, formal gowns, strapless dresses, and backless dresses are not allowed.  Spaghetti strap dresses are allowed.  We suggest that boys wear nice pants and a nice shirt.  Students attending the dance should plan to be in the Commons by 5:30p.m. and remain in the building until the dance is over, unless they have made prior arrangements with an administrator.

Promotion Practice
Promotion practice participation is mandatory!  If your student is not present at promotion practice, they will not be able to participate in the Promotion Ceremony.

The Promotion Ceremony will be held during the school day. Date will be announced at a later time.  Parents and guardians are welcome to attend this event held in our Commons.  It will include some speakers and entertainment.  All 8th graders will receive individual recognition and certificates.




Eighth grade students must pay all fines or they will not be allowed to participate in the 8th grade dance.


Lunch Accounts

According to District policy, any lunch accounts with money remaining will have that money held over for the next school year. Eighth grade accounts will be transferred to the high school.
