Fourth Grade Parents Needed at Fifth Grade Promotion Ceremony
Seven Locks has a tradition whereby 4th grade parents help at the 5th grade promotion ceremony so that all 5th grade parents are able to enjoy this end of elementary school right-of-passage with their families. In keeping with this tradition, we are looking for 4th grade parents to volunteer at this year's 5th grade promotion which will take place Thursday, June 13, 5:45pm. This is also a great opportunity for middle school and high school students to earn SSL hours. Sign up here
