At the end of the 8th grade year, the CPO 8th grade events committee plans several special events for students:
8th grade social/dance: This event is typically held during the last month of school, often on a Friday night. The social/dance is planned and set up by 8th grade parents, with 7th grade parents serving as chaperones for the evening.
Yearbook signing and breakfast: Students enjoy a breakfast and an opportunity to sign one another’s yearbooks on the day before the last day of school. This event is for students only and is held outdoors when weather permits. A rehearsal for the Moving on Ceremony immediately follows.
Moving On reception: The CPO hosts a reception for friends and families to gather, immediately following the Moving On ceremony on the last day of school. The reception is held outdoors, weather permitting.
Additional events during the last week of school may include food trucks, parades, and a volleyball tournament.
