8th Grade Continuation

Illustration of a certificate, a camera, and a cupcake.We invite our eighth grade families to join us in recognizing our eighth grade students on Wednesday, May 25, 2022. The Continuation ceremony will take place on the field at 10 am. We ask that families bring their own chairs. In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will be held in the gymnasium. Later in the day, a celebration just for students will take place.

We have attire guidelines below for families to help their students make choices for celebratory wear.

The PTA is hosting an End of Middle School Bash from 6 - 7:30 pm on Wednesday, May 25th. The totally awesome 80's themed bash will have food, games, music, a selfie station, a caricature artist, and a photo booth. Either a printed and signed physical permission slip or a completed digital permission slip is required for entry.

Volunteer opportunities are available before, during and after the event. Adult volunteers are asked to confirm the role(s) they would like to help with on the End of Middle School Bash SignUpGenius.

Any questions about the celebration may be directed to Maria Beken, mlealbeken@gmail.com.

2021 8th grade Continuation Ceremony

In order to have a ceremony within scheduling and logistical constraints on an early release day, our school held a student-centered Continuation assembly and celebrated them throughout the day on May 27, 2021. Our PTA provided gift bags for each student as we celebrated their end of middle school.

The WJMS PTA thanks the following businesses for their contributions to the gift bags: Happy Llama, Inc., the Conifer Dutch Bros Coffee, the Aspen Park King Soopers, Mac Nation Cafe, and the Conifer Wendy's.
