8th Grade End of the Year Award Ceremony & Dance

At Caloosa Middle School we celebrate our 8th grade students and their promotion to high school with an 8th grade awards ceremony that is by invitation only and is held in the evening during the last week of school. Students are awarded for demonstrating scholarship, leadership, and citizenship. Parents, family, and friends are invited to attend.

Immediately following the awards ceremony, all 8th grade students who have good grades, behavior, and have returned all school property and settled any outstanding fees or fines are invited to attend the 8th grade dance. This dance is for 8th graders only. Although not required, students may choose to dress up for this event in semi-formal attire; however, all students must be in dress code in order to be admitted into the dance.
