There are many activities and privileges for the 8th grade graduates. Some of these include dances, field trips, the May Procession, and the graduation retreat. Graduation week may include free dress, graduation rehearsals, a dance, and dinner, Baccalaureate Mass, and graduation.
Graduation from St. Joseph Elementary School is marked by a simple and dignified
celebration that gives recognition to the unique value of the Christian education just completed.
Graduating students wear the traditional gown for the Graduation Mass and ceremony. Tasteful/appropriate attire should be worn for the occasion: dress shirts, dress pants and appropriate shoes for boys; dress attire for girls is to be modest. The school “free dress”
code applies to graduation attire; no baggy pants, over-sized shirts, tank tops, spaghetti straps, bare midriffs, and skirts/dresses must be appropriate length.
Again, the administration and staff reserve the right to determine appropriate attire.
