Promotion Requirements

Promotion from our middle school is an important and exciting milestone. We have enjoyed watching your children grow and will miss them as they exit CMS and the Castaic Union School District.


All 8th graders must meet the following in order to participate in the promotion ceremony and end of year activities:

  • Students may not fail more than 4 courses during their 7th and 8th grade years.
  • Students may not accumulate 15 demerits or more in order to participate in end of year 8th grade celebration activities (Gradventure, Awards Ceremony and ASB lunch.) Students who accumulate 25 or more will not participate in the promotion ceremony in addition to the 8th grade activities.
  • Students must attend all rehearsals. Anyone who does not will not participate that evening.
  • Students must meet all financial obligations, i.e. paying for, scheduling payment for, or clearance from the Principal for lost or damaged books and/or library fines.


Promotion Ceremony


Eligible students will be issued 4 guest tickets on the morning of promotion, prior to early dismissal.

All persons age 4 and older attending the ceremony must have their own ticket.

The Promotion Ceremony will be held  on the CMS athletic field on June 4, 2020  at 5 p.m.
