IMPORTANT CHANGES to 8th Grade Promotion Information!


Dear 8th Graders and Families,

We are happy to announce that we have been able to work with Serrano’s staff to use Snowline Stadium for our promotion ceremony.  There will still be restrictions and limitations to how many guests that we can accommodate, but this will allow us to have only one ceremony for all of our promoting 8th graders.  Please read the information in this letter carefully regarding the changes to the promotion ceremony.  We have also continued to include the information about the rest of our 8th grade end of year events here so that you have all the information in one spot.  

May 11:  You will see banners hanging on the school fence that faces Sheep Creek Road.  Those banners include the names of all promoting 8th graders, so please feel free to stop and take a picture with your name.  

Friday, June 4:  8th Grade Celebration with DJ, dinner, photo booth, and games from 5:30-8pm.  This will be an outdoor event but we ask that you please dress nicely for it.  Bring a jacket or sweater because evenings can cool down, even in June.  This will be only for Pinon Mesa 8th graders and will be free for you to attend.  Face coverings will be required except when eating, drinking, or taking pictures. **Invites and RSVP form are attached.  You must RSVP by May 27 at 3pm.  This is free for all promoting 8th graders, but due to restrictions we are limited as to how many we can allow to attend.  These were previously emailed home to be printed and returned, you can print the one attached to this announcement and return it, or a hard copy can be picked up in the office.  

Tuesday, June 8 - 8th Grade Promotion Ceremony Practice from 9:30-11:30

Wednesday, June 9:  8th Grade Promotion Ceremony.  The ceremony will take place at Serrano High School in the Snowline Stadium.  Please understand that while we are excited to have a larger venue so that we can have one ceremony with all students, we still have to meet the guidelines as outlined by the State of California for graduations and promotions.  This will be an in-person ceremony that will begin at 10:00am and gates will open one hour prior to the ceremony.  Each student will be given 4 tickets only.  Tickets will be required for entry for every person regardless of age, including young children.  There will be a liability waiver that will need to be signed by all participants prior to receiving your tickets.  We will send out detailed information on entry to the stadium, parking, and tickets in the near future.

8th Grade Promotion Yard Signs:  We have a limited number of extra 8th Grade Promotion yard signs available, for purchase, in the ASB office.  These will be sold on a first come, first served basis.  The cost is $10 and can be paid in cash or card.  No checks can be accepted at this time.  If you pre-ordered a sign, please pick it up in the office.  

2020-21 Yearbooks are still available and can be purchased in the ASB office or by phone.  Cost is $25 and can be paid by cash or card.  Phone orders must be paid by card.  Please call 760-868-4072 to order.

We are very grateful to Serrano’s administration and staff for working with us to make this change happen.  We are very proud of the Class of 2021, and we are looking forward to celebrating them in person. Please watch for more specific details for promotion in the next week.  If you have any questions, please call the ASB office at (760) 868-4072 or the front office at 760-868-3126.
