8th Grade Promotion Information


We are happy to announce that all students will be included in our promotion celebration this year. Given the circumstances, attendance and other criteria will be waived. All students will be able to pick up a promotion certificate at our school on the materials drop off dates of Monday, June 1st and Tuesday, June 2nd.  Time and date assignments are listed below by student last name. There will be a drive through and walk up option. Only immediate family members are allowed. All social distancing rules will be in place and students and families will not be allowed to get out of the car for the drive through option.  If you are unable to make it on one of these days we will mail the certificate home.

Material Drop-off

We will have a pick up of promotion certificates for all students in coordination with a drop off of materials.   We are collecting textbooks, old uniforms, and anything else you would like to donate.  We are not collecting devices if students are continuing onto a San Diego Unified High School.  If you are leaving the district, please do drop off your child’s device.  Please see below for the time slots for each student.

Promotion Video

We are going to have a promotion video in place of a traditional promotion ceremony.  Our ASB adviser, Ms. Leach, will put together a video and needs your help.  Please add her Google Classroom for 8th grade families to share a video or photo of your 8th grade student. Check your Google Classroom to see if your teachers have shared this code with you. If you haven't received it, please email Ms. Leach.

IB Community Project Certificate

During these challenging times, many students were not able to complete their Community Project (CP) Service. However, all students have the opportunity to complete the culminating Reflection for their CP. The reflection will be graded on an 8 point IB Rubric and students will be awarded an additional IB Community Project Certificate if they score a 6 or higher. The guidelines for the Reflection along with the IB Rubric can be found on the Roosevelt web page. If you have any questions, please contact your Advisory teacher or Ms. Christensen.
