 8th Grade Info FAQs Ceremony   

8th Grade Promotion Ceremony
at the Torrance High School Gym

 

 

Where do I park?  
It is easier to find parking if you arrive at 5:30.  There is another school before us and we need to give them time to leave.  THe best parking is on the backside of THS on Plaza del Amo.  Park in the lot across the street from the high school then walk over.  See the map below to plan your parking.    

 

If you choose to park along the front side street please be considerate to the neighbors: do not block driveways or leave trash on their lawns.


Do I need a ticket?

Yes, space is limited in the gym so this will be a ticketed event.  More information to come.

Why can't I wear my favorite shoes with high spiked heels?
Shoes with spiked heels will cause damage to Torrance High's gym floor.  

What is the Student Dress Code under the gown?
Because this is a formal occasion and a celebration, many students dress up the event.  

For Girls:

  • No strapless tops
  • No spaghetti straps or halter tops  (shoulder strap must be at least 1" inch wide)
  • No shorts or short skirts (skirts must be at no shorter than tip of finger when arms are straight)
  • No spiked heeled shoes or flip flops

 For Boys:

  • Casual business type outfit preferred - tie is optional
  • No inappropriate designs or language on T-shirt

 

What is acceptable audience behavior?
We enjoy your enthusiasam and support for your student. We love to applaud too and are very proud of them reaching this point.  Unfortunately, in the past, excessive yelling and noise ruins hearing the name of the student following.  Everyone deserves to be applauded when their name is called but please give the same respect for the next student in line.

 

Do we have time after the ceremony to take pictures?
Yes, after the ceremony you will be able to join your student for photos.  All of the Magruder teaching staff and administrators attend the ceremony.  They will be glad to take a family photo...just ask.
