Say No to Memorial 8th Grade Graduation at PV Gym

This petition had 98 supporters

This petition is being created as a result of yesterday's HSA meeting where there was discussion regarding the 2017 graduation ceremony.

Traditionally the Memorial 8th grade graduation ceremony is held in the Passaic Valley High School auditorium. Unfortunately, due to the large size of this year's 8th grade class, the auditorium cannot accommodate us.  Instead the plan is to hold the ceremony in PVHS' Griswold Gym.

The gym is not air-conditioned and will require guests to sit in the bleachers.  Not an ideal situation for the end of June.  Especially since there is potentially ANOTHER OPTION!

That option would be to hold the ceremony at Passaic County Tech's auditorium, which is a much more suitable venue - a state-of-the-art facility much more conducive to a graduation ceremony.. Besides the comfort of those attending,and the sound and lighting systems being better, there is NO COST to the school district for using PCTI's auditorium instead of Passaic Valley's gym.  WHY WOULDN'T WE USE IT?  Our tax dollars support the county schools just as they do PV.

Just because it's always been held at PV doesn't mean it HAS to again!

Please sign this petition to let our Superintendent and other district School Board officials know that we, the parents, are extremely unhappy with this decision and want this changed for the benefit of our students, faculty and families.
