8th Grade Graduation Reminders

Please take note of the following information related to our graduation on Thursday, June 21, 2018:




  • The graduates will wear blue gowns over their clothing.  Under the gown, boys are instructed to wear dress pants, a white or light colored shirt and tie.  It is advisable that girls’ dresses be no longer than the length of their gowns.  Jeans, flip flops, and sneakers are inappropriate for both boys and girls, and therefore are prohibited to be worn.  It is prohibited to accessorize the gown for commencement. 
  • All eighth grade students must report to the Cafeteria for commencement at 5:45 p.m. for their class picture.  Drop off is through the north driveway opposite the River Vale Library only. 
  • Additional seating is available in the Cafeteria for your guests who do not have tickets.  Children must be supervised by an adult. 
  • Absolutely no helium balloons will be allowed inside of HMS.   The accidental release of a helium balloon could cause the fire alarm to be triggered.  This policy will be strictly enforced. 
  • The doors will open for graduation guests at 6:00 p.m. on June 21, 2018.  
  • Because of the limited parking spaces available at Holdrum Middle School, parents are asked to park at Roberge and Woodside Elementary Schools.  There will be a shuttle bus service from Roberge and Woodside Elementary Schools bringing the parents to the HMS Graduation Commencement beginning at 5:45 p.m.  Parents are asked to use the shuttle buses for transportation.  Return buses from Holdrum Middle School will be provided at the end of the ceremony.
