Preparing for Your Future

8th Grade Continuation Requirements

8th Grade Continuation Requirements

The purpose of establishing requirements for the Continuation ceremony, as well as the celebrations leading up to it, is to continue to develop our MM students as learners and teach the importance of hard work, responsibility and accountability. We are hopeful these requirements will help students with their confidence in being high school ready.

As stated in our handbook, 8th graders who do not meet the following requirements will not participate in Continuation events.

Attendance: Students must meet a 94% overall rate.

Grades: Students must earn a C or higher in all classes

Behavior: Students must meet classroom and MMMS expectations that align with the THUNDER values. Repeat behavior incidents (more than 2 Dean referrals) will result in a student being ineligible for attending the continuation ceremony or celebrations.

College and Career Readiness

College and Career Readiness

One of the most helpful tools students have to prepare for college and your future career is the Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP), a process that starts in sixth grade and continues throughout middle and high school. This is a continuation requirement for MMMS and a 12th grade graduation requirement for DPS.

Our school counselor will meet with students throughout the year to discuss their ICAP and complete necessary requirements.
