Honors Assembly for K-8: May 24 Info and Dress Code

Our annual year-end Honors Assembly for Grades K-8 is WEDNESDAY, MAY 24 at 8:30 a.m. in the Church.  Our guest speaker is Beth Ghaphery Johnson '77.

PLEASE NOTE that Middle School students need to be dropped off by 8:15 a.m. that morning at St. Michael's Church, not the Middle School.
For this occasion, students are expected to adhere to the Dress-Up Day dress code, found in the Directory:
  • Students must wear either: (a) a dress shirt, tie*, and long pants; (b) a dress; or (c) a dress blouse with a dress skirt/pants.
  • *Students K to 3rd grade may substitute a tucked in collared shirt for a dress shirt and tie.
Due to space limitations, we ask that only parents whose children are receiving the Math or Literary Awards attend. Thank you for understanding.
