The Day is Almost Here... Graduation 2018

June 11th, 2018
Dear Parents / Guardians,
Re: Graduation
As hard as it is to believe, graduation is only 2 weeks away!  This year’s ceremonies will be held on
Monday, June 25th at 6:30 pm, in the school gymnasium.  Students are invited to bring 6 guests,
however we can make exceptions where needed. We will be asking students to confirm numbers for
attendance, later this week. Students should arrive in Ms. Young’s room at 6:00 pm in order to
prepare for the ceremony. Gymnasium doors will be unlocked for guests at this time.

It has been the Bayview tradition for students to wear graduation gowns during the ceremonies.
This year’s fundraising efforts have made it possible for the school to cover total rental costs and  
will include a souvenir cap for each student to keep. Immediately following the ceremonies, we invite
you to participate in a student / parent (or other significant person) dance. This will be followed by a
fast dance and a slow dance for our graduates. This will be the conclusion of the Bayview portion
of events.
Please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Bell or Ms. Young if you have any questions or concerns.
Sincerely,
The Bayview Intermediate Team
