Upcoming Events for 8th Graders

ATTN 8th Grade Parents:

Baby photos needed! We need photos of our cute little 8th grade babies. The deadline is May 4th. Photos may be emailed to jill.goldsberry@henderson.kyschools.us  or may be brought in and scanned. Please make sure the first and last name of the 8th grader are sent in with the photos.

We would like to invite you to attend our 8th Grade Recognition Ceremony on Friday, May 18th. Continental breakfast will begin at 8:00 a.m. in the gym, followed by the recognition program at 9:00 a.m. in the auditorium. We will be recognizing our 8th grade students for all of their accomplishments throughout their time here at South Middle School. 8th graders are dismissed after the ceremony.  

DRESS CODE: This is a special event. Please make an effort to look your very best. Girls’ dresses should be an appropriate length with no spaghetti straps or strapless without a sweater or shrug.  

When you arrive, please sign in at the table in the lobby.  

Be sure you do not block the bus lane in the parking lot.  





8th GRADE DANCE will be Friday, May 11th! 


It is a South Middle School Tradition to celebrate the 8th graders by throwing them an 8th grade dance. The dance is only for 8th graders and it will be held in the SMS Cafeteria from 7pm-9pm. When students arrive, they need to enter through the library doors--all other entrances will be locked. The cost of the dance is $5 at the door, and we will provide a Red Carpet, Photo Booth, a DJ, Pizza, Cookies, and Drinks.


This is a formal event so please review the expectations for the dress code that is in our March Bulldog Bark Newsletter.


We are so excited to celebrate the 8th Graders! Come and enjoy a night with your friends! This is the last BIG event you will attend as an SMS Student.
