Information for 8th Graders and Parents

Promotion Gowns

8th Graders!

We are less than four months away from promotion.  We want to take this time to give you some information. We are working to create a meaningful and memorable promotion experience for our 8th grade students, whether it be in person or in distance.   

At Buchser, we have all students wear a promotion gown.  We are letting you know early so you do not need to go out and spend an enormous amount of money on new dresses and suits.  The dress code under the robe is casual, but needs to still adhere to dress code.  

Promotion gowns are available to purchase or borrow using the following links:

The deadline to submit your preference is March 12th.

At the end of the presentation is a slide that asks you to take a survey as it helps to provide feedback in planning future support for parents and students.  Below is the link to the survey.
