Subject: Important Information Regarding 8th Grade Promotion Criteria

Dear 8th Grade Parents,

I hope this letter finds you well. As we approach the end of the school year, we would like to bring your attention to the criteria for 8th-grade promotion and participation in related events. It is essential for both parents and students to be aware of these requirements to ensure a smooth and enjoyable transition to high school.

  1. Academic Performance:
    • Students must maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0
    • Those who do not achieve this GPA by the 3rd quarter mid-term progress reports will not be eligible to participate in the end-of-year promotion ceremony.
  2. Classroom Citizenship:
    • Students should have no more than two INC (incomplete) marks for classroom citizenship.
    • Eligibility for the promotion ceremony will be determined by the number of incomplete marks at the 3rd quarter mid-term progress reports.
  3. Behavioral Standards:
    • Noli enforces a strict policy on school-wide behavior.
    • Students are allowed no more than 4 referrals and 0 suspensions during the school year to qualify for the end-of-year 8th-grade field trip.
    • This will be assessed based on the 3rd quarter mid-term progress reports

Notification Process

  • Parents will be promptly notified if their student is in danger of losing any privileges based on referrals and/or GPA criteria.
  • Please refer to page 32 in the 23/24 student handbook for more detailed information on these criteria.

We believe that maintaining clear expectations will help students succeed academically and behaviorally, ensuring a positive end to their middle school journey. We appreciate your cooperation and involvement in your child's education.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.

Thank you for your understanding and support.
