Eighth Grade Participation Criteria

Challenger Middle School’s first priority is preparing students for high school both academically and socially.  We are monitoring every student and want to make every effort to ensure their success.

We celebrate the accomplishments of our 8th graders at the end of the school year with a boat cruise and promotion ceremony.  We also have other fun activities throughout the school year.  In order for 8th graders to participate in these activities, it is essential that students maintain appropriate academic progress and behavior.  

To qualify for an activity, the student must meet the participation requirements on the grading period prior to the activity as identified on the Grading Period Chart below.  

For example: If the Boat Cruise is scheduled for June 2, the student would have to qualify with the grades from the P4 Progress Report.
